Main themes
From the Renaissance to art today
The main focus is on the thematic links which enable us to understand the three paradigms in art - classical, modern and contemporary:
  • methodology, lexical hypotheses (total art and art synthesis, classical versus modern, modern versus contemporary, H. Zeeman) and bibliography
  • art and nature (Renaissance - Realism - art and photography - Impressionism - Fauvism - Land Art)
  • art and space (Renaissance - Baroque ' Cubism and Futurism - Cézanne - abstraction - Minimalism)
  • art and the psyche (Goya - Romanticism - Expressionism - Surrealism - Cobra)
  • the artist and art (Renaissance - Velasquez - Romanticism - Dadaism - Fluxus - Hacktivism)
  • art and society (Pop Art - Arte Povera - Beuys, social sculpture and conceptual art ' multimedia, transmedia, digital art ?)
