Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop Previous Broadcasts

James Abbott McNeill Whistler's Venice (Episode #205H)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 21, 2016 -- 12:30 PM

David travels to two iconic Venetian locations that inspired provocative artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) during his transformative trip in 1879-1880. Whistler's pastels, along with his etchings, brought him increased fame when he returned to London. David demonstrates a pastel drawing using Whistler's techniques and color palette while standing on the Giudecca overlooking the broad panorama of Venice. He then visits the famous Piazza San Marco and completes a quick oil sketch in the twilight, fading rapidly into night.

James Abbott McNeill Whistler's Venetian Etchings (Episode #204H)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 14, 2016 -- 12:30 PM

David travels to beautiful Venetian locations that inspired provocative, iconoclastic artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) during his transformative trip in 1879-1880. Whistler's fame from the etchings that he created in the backstreets of Venice helped rehabilitate his artistic reputation after a disastrous libel trial with noted art critic John Ruskin. David demonstrates a dry point on a copper plate alongside a canal, the Rio de San Barnaba, located near Whistler's first studio at the Ca' Rezzonico, demonstrating Whistler's brilliance in graphic design.

John Singer Sargent's Venice (Episode #203H)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 7, 2016 -- 12:30 PM

John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) travels to Venice many times over a 40-year period and paints dazzling plein air watercolor landscapes, turning away from portraiture. David paints a watercolor demonstration at the famous Piazza dei Giovanni e Paolo, the same scene painted by Sargent and centuries of painters, exploring his color theory and painting technique.
