Creative Connections

The writings of Edgar Allan Poe influenced artists like Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin to create paintings. Gertrude Stein once told Picasso that he abstracted art the way she abstracted her writing. Throughout history several famous writers and artists have influenced each other's creations. This presentation will focus on the influences between pairs like: Eugene Delacroix and Charles Baudelaire, Auguste Rodin and Rainer Maria Rilke, Roger Fry and Virginia Woolf, Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein.

Marco Polo

Venetian merchant, traveler, and storyteller extraordinaire, Marco Polo (1254-1324) will be our guide to the globalization of the medieval world made possible by Mongol conquests in Asia. You will analyze Marco Polo as both traveler and writer, comparing his narrative to the accounts left by Western merchants, Christian missionaries, and Muslim travelers, and enjoying some fantastic stories. You will explore the trading networks of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Finally, you will consider the legacies of this trade and Marco Polo's tales in the spread of the Black Death (1348-1351), the exploration of the New World, and "New Silk Road" projects today.
