In this short course we shall study three American painters’ response to their landscape. From the urban realism of Edward Hopper’s work to the colourful abstractions of Georgia O’Keeffe and the dynamic work of Jackson Pollock, each responded in a unique way in their art. Together, we will unveil the secrets of their creativity in relation to their environment.
