Speaker Series: An evening with Juan Martinez

Speaker Series: An evening with Juan Martinez


Join Juan Martinez as he presents The Academy Way, an eye-opening look at the Parisian art world of the 19th century. Artists from around the globe found their way to Paris, the epicenter of the art world at this point in history, where they sought to learn the great traditions of fine art as embodied by the French School of Fine Art (Ecole des Beaux-Arts).  The classical style of art that emerged from the Ecole became a worldwide standard, and these artworks were celebrated and collected widely at this time.  After falling out of favour for nearly a century, a large number of artists are now being trained, and are practicing, in a similar fashion to the French tradition.  People will come away from this fascinating presentation with an appreciation for the high realism of the French academic period, and its current,  influence on a new generation of artists and art enthusiasts.
