First Saturday Tour
The Journey to Modernism Tour
4 May 2013
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

But these artists had something very specific in mind when they shocked the eye of the beholder.  Join us at the Norton as we explore how modern art came to be and look at some of the early masters of the form, both European and American.  We'll explore the academic devotion to form, the Impressionists' explosion of color and light, the Post-Impressionists' rejection of classic perspective, and the Modernists' fragmentation and eventual rejection of traditional notions of the purpose methods of art-making.  And at the end, you can answer for yourself the age-old question, "But is it art?"
