Teaching Gallery: Battle of Ideal vs. Real: The Figure in Nineteenth-Century Art. During the transformative period of the nineteenth century, artists experimented with alternative ways of representing the body while questioning established conventions. Battle of Ideal vs. Real: The Figure in Nineteenth-Century Art explores those vibrant artistic practices that reinterpreted aesthetic traditions and forged new ones. Featuring works by Honoré Daumier, Edgar Degas, Julien Dupré, Anne-Louis Girodet, and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, among others, this exhibition incorporates paintings, sculptures, drawings, caricatures, and prints to demonstrate the breadth of this dialogue. Curated by Meg Galindo and Max Valsamas, PhD students in the Department of Art History & Archaeology in Arts & Sciences, in conjunction with the course “Introduction to Western Art, Architecture, and Design” offered in summer 2016.
