London Art Studies lectures at The Berkeley, in Knightsbridge, London, are an exciting, sophisticated way to learn about art. Lectures are limited to 14 students, and top and tail a two course lunch specially prepared in the hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant, Koffmann’s. The day begins at 10am, and ends 2.30pm.


The huge and diverse range of art produced in America after World War II made it - and specifically, New York - a new artistic centre, replacing Paris. Supported by new institutions, new critics and new patrons, artists made astonishing leaps which announced American art on the world stage. This study day will follow the chronology of post-war American art, from the pioneering abstraction of Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning and Newman in the 1940’s and 1950’s, to the ‘neo-Dada’ of Johns and Rauschenberg in the mid-fifties, into the explosion of Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual Art and Land Art in the 1960’s and 1970’s. We will also take a look at artistic production, with special emphasis on Californian art in the 1960’s and 1970’s, culminating in a survey of contemporary American art.

This lecture is designed to appeal to both curious beginners and more knowledgeable art-lovers. London Art Studies' events are 'spas for the mind' - a wonderful way to switch off, learn and have fun. Classes make lovely gifts too.
