A half-day course on important artists from the abstract art movement in postwar Europe, whose works are receiving increasing critical acclaim and making new auction records. Veteran art dealer Catherine Kwai will take us to mid-20th century Paris, where literature, performing arts and the mix of East and West inspired artists to take abstract art to a new height. We will also visit "Extended Figure: the Art and Inspiration of Lalan" at the Asia Society.
