Art & Ideas: The Serpentine Line and the Fin-de-Siècle with Veronica Carter
December 5, 2019 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
7:00 PM | FREE | Donations appreciated | Registration Required | Seats limited
The unbroken, expressive and sinuous serpentine line emerged as a point of artistic fascination across multiple mediums in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century visual and material culture. Functioning as a compositional device, an ornamental motif, and a formal feature of avant-garde style, it appears in everything from illustrations to advertisements, from jewelry to fashion, from
domestic interiors to architectural design.
Veronica Carter has a degree in English Literature from the University of Guelph and completed her graduate studies in Art History at Queen’s University. She specialized in nineteenth-century visual culture and the emergence of the French avant-garde.
