William J. Havlicek, Ph.D.: Modern Art Demystified

William J. Havlicek, PhD
Modern Art Demystified

For many people modern art remains an enigma, and for good reason, as some practitioners of modernist art seek to provoke and confront rather than console viewers. This audio-visual presentation presents many of the best-known modernist artists within a tradition that began with 19th-century Impressionists and Post-Impressionists including Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and continuing into the 20th century with De Kooning, Rothko, Gorky, Pollock and many others who retained, well into our own era, a love for nature as they practiced advanced painting research.

Author, art historian and artist Dr. William Havlicek presented one of our most popular mornings with his book and lecture on Van Gogh’s Untold Journey.  He has over 30 years of experience in college teaching, museum administration, publishing and fine art/studio production and exhibition. He holds a Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University and is a graduate of the University of Iowa with both Masters of Arts and Masters of Fine Arts Degrees. He currently teaches at the Laguna College of Art + Design in Laguna Beach, California and has lectured often at the Bowers Museum.
