Academy Travel are proud to sponsor the Friends of Hazelhurst Regional Gallery’s Artz Talk 2019 program.
Travel to the bohemian world of fin de siècle Barcelona and Montmartre by the hand of the charismatic Santiago Rusiñol (1861 – 1931), teacher of Pablo Picasso and close friend of Ramón Casas and Eric Satie. ‘Renaissance’ man of Modernist Barcelona, Rusiñol is as celebrated today for his plays, essays, and collections. However, we will focus on his passion for gardens, rendered in luminous and evocative paintings that will plunge us into the rich universe of this lesser known artist and magician of light.
