Delacroix - Liberty Leading the People -

Great art comes from real people living real lives. In his popular Art+History series,  Paul Glenshaw brings his audience though space and time to revisit vibrant moments in history when iconic works were created, whether it’s Second Empire Paris, Boston in the American Revolution, or medieval Calais. 

The immersive presentations are more like live documentaries than lectures. They're designed especially for the online experience, with extensive use of Google Earth seamlessly integrated with archival maps, images, and dramatic footage to put the viewer right in the action.

Liberty Leading the People, by Éugene Delacroix

Delacroix’s commemoration of the 1830 July Revolution has become an icon of the French Republic. He revolutionized romantic painting but was actually born into the upper French society, and favored subjects rooted in literature, history, and religion. He witnessed the Le Trois Glorieuse firsthand, at first with fear. What caused French citizens across classes to rise up against King Charles X? And how was Delacroix transformed?

From online reviews:

 

“What a wonderful way to learn about art and history!” 

“I can't wait to be part of another of Paul's presentations because they really make me feel I am a part of what is happening!”
