Art and Industry

The industrial revolution in Europe is famous for changing the way goods were produced and distributed. It also revolutionized the ways artists represented the world. Romantic painters wanted to preserve a vision of nature and society in which individual perception was more important than standardization and productivity. French Impressionists used a new invention—oil paints in tubes—to go outside the studio and capture images that were dramatically different from the photographs taken by newly invented cameras. Katie Janssen will show examples of ways that artists have used new technologies to celebrate, or to criticize, our industrial world.
