Course aim:
To offer an introduction to appreciating art which responds to the Yorkshire landscape in an online, group setting. We will identify and analyse artists and works from various contexts and media, within a broader social and cultural context.
Course description:
Whilst the subject of landscape has been familiar and celebrated in art for centuries, the Yorkshire landscape has captured the imagination of well-known artists from different periods, using various media and approaches, including JMW Turner, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney and John Piper. This online, welcoming and discursive course will explore familiar practitioners from a range of backgrounds, eras and disciplines as well as lesser-known figures and more marginalised practices. You will have the opportunity to develop your appreciation of a range of visual approaches to the landscape and to introduce and present artists and works relating to this subject which you find interesting. We will explore the notion of a sense of place alongside the arts infrastructure and broader social, cultural and political concerns within Yorkshire. We will further compare and contrast interpretations and discuss Yorkshire landscapes alongside the wider landscape genre of European art.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Identify at least 3 different approaches to the Yorkshire landscape in art and visual culture
2. Describe the physical characteristics and techniques of at least 3 examples Yorkshire landscape art and suggest how these characteristics affects the work's visual appeal
3. Discuss wider influences which inform particular responses to the Yorkshire landscape including art networks, collections, social, political & historical contexts; as well as artistic influences and personal matters
4. Situate examples of Yorkshire landscape art within the broader context of the landscape in Western art, considering changing perceptions and values
5. Participate in constructive discussions with other students online, to compare interpretations, opinions and greater understand works of art and their contexts
