Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions

Sailing the Danube

Sat., April 9, 7:30 pm



The Danube River flows through nine countries and is one of the great rivers
of Europe. Burt Wolf stops in Nuremberg, Germany, where we take a look at
the works of Albrecht Durer, master artist of the 14th century. Next, it’s
a visit to Salzburg, Austria, with a walk through the streets where Mozart
lived and a tour of the ancient Melk Abbey. The program ends with a visit
to Hungary’s capitol, Budapest.





In this three-part series, Professor Amanda Vickery explores the story of
female creativity through the ages with a fascinating art history tour from
the Renaissance to the 20th century. Vickery shows how a familiarity with
female artistry helps us to understand the ways societal attitudes toward
women and their artistic endeavors have evolved throughout the years.


Part 1 of 3

Sat., April 9, 8:00 pm


Professor Vickery begins her journey in Florence, cradle of the Renaissance.
This was a world where women’s private lives and creativity were well hidden
behind closed doors. Vickery encounters intrepid art historians who, as they
have discovered long-forgotten works in basements, storeroom and convents,
also uncover the incredible stories of female artists who fulfilled their
artistic ambitions, despite myriad social constraints placed upon them.
Leaving the opulence and excess of Catholicism behind, Vickery heads north,
discovering how the Protestant Reformation created a very different
artistic landscape.


Part 2 of 3

Sat., April 9, 9:00 pm


Professor Vickery turns the spotlight on Britain – a new world leader in
innovation, manufacturing and commerce, and France – home to the finest
and most extravagant court of the 18th century. It’s a world defined by male
artists like Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough. Yet this was a world
shaped, styled and designed by women. Much of the art produced by women had
the status of “amateur” – a word that had yet to acquire the negative
connotations it holds today.


Part 3 of 3

Sat., April 9, 10:00 pm


Professor Vickery explores the explosion of creative opportunities seized by
women from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century. At a time when women were
beginning to demand greater social and economic freedoms and boldly forge
independent paths, female creativity would not only triumph in traditionally
male-dominated artistic arenas but redefine the very notion of what art could
be. One artist, in particular, forged the most unconventional of paths while
using conventional mediums: Georgia O’Keefe. O’Keefe founded an artistic
movement from her New Mexico retreat, proving that with courage and talent
women could be recognized as world class artists.
