Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop Previous Broadcasts

American Impressionists In Old Lyme, Ct (Episode #108)

KQED Life: Sun, Oct 29, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

Old Lyme, CT was a popular artist colony at the turn of the century with many painters who had also painted in Paris and Giverny, learning the new trends from the French avant-garde. David takes us to the Florence Griswold Museum garden and demonstrates how American Impressionists create the sensual experience of interwoven color, texture, and movement from a palette of complementary colors painted outside or en plein air, a term made popular during this time.

Etretat - A Landscape of Inspiration along the Normandy Coast of France (Episode #107)

KQED Life: Sun, Oct 22, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

David introduces the majestic white cliffs rising out of the sea at Etretat on the Normandy Coast and their role in the inventive periods of French painting from the romanticism of Delacroix, the realism of Courbet to the Impressionism of the late 1860's through the 1880's. They all respond to Etretat's iconic arches over the sea. He compares the styles and visions of Etretat's artists and reveals the keys to their paintings.

Jmw Turner at the Harbor of Honfleur (Episode #106)

KQED Life: Sun, Oct 15, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

David visits the dramatic Northern French Coast of Normandy at the harbor of Honfleur with its distinctive skyline - a favorite location of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851). Acknowledged as one of history's greatest landscape watercolorist, Turner deftly transfers his innovative watercolor techniques to his oil painting. David explores this remarkable series of innovations while considering Turner's techniques and composition, borrowed from the atmospheric perspective and freely interpreted landscapes of 17th century French landscape master Claude Lorrain.

American Impressionists In Giverny, France (Episode #105)

KQED Life: Sun, Oct 8, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

David follows in the footsteps of the American artists who formed an art colony in Giverny in the 1880-1920s, drawn by the creative magnetic influence of Claude Monet. In the last quarter of the 19th century, artists from Paris escaped the uncomfortable heat of the Parisian summers by train to the surrounding villages along the Seine to form art colonies. The American artists formed a well-integrated colony in Giverny and explored an American style of Impressionism that was then exported to the United States at the turn of the century. David will explore the similarities and differences between French Impressionism and American Impressionism as he paints on the hillside above Giverny, popular with Theodore Robinson and Willard Metcalf.

Renoir's Olive Groves in the South of France (Episode #104)

KQED Life: Sun, Oct 1, 2017 -- 12:30 PM

At Pierre Auguste Renoir's (1841-1919) home and studio in Les Colettes in the South of France, David takes us through the ancient olive grove overlooking Nice and the Mediterranean. David Traces Renoir's difficult but ultimately successful quest for putting clean and strong color into soft and suggestive shapes. David sets his easel precisely where Renoir set his and demonstrates Renoir's methods, describing their effects and explaining his thoughts.
