EDUCATION: COURSESThe course begins with the1900s and the critical influence ofRodin in rejuvenating sculpturaltradition, thence to Cubism andthe forward-looking ideas of theFuturists and RussianConstructivists. In the 1930s we see Giacomettiintroducing Surrealism and theparallel development of abstractionand totalitarian art. Post-war, British sculpturecomes to the fore through HenryMoore and Barbara Hepworth, andthat of the United States throughDavid Smith. We dwell on the attitudes of the1960s sculptors inspired bymodern consumer culture, beforeprogressing through minimalism tothe personal symbolism of artistssuch as Joseph Beuys and Eva Hesse.
