LECTURE REVIEW - Shocking Social Realism

"Again through paintings, Karla has shown what history was at a certain period of time. In this lecture, we saw how at the end of the 19th-beginning of the 20th century, women were judged. In Spanish society, they were supposed to be well into their role of wife and mother. If something happened like becoming an orphan or widowed, they did not have many choices on how they could return to their society. They could go to a nunnery or become a prostitute. A certain number of painters denounced this situation and tried to open people's minds to this. I learned that painting is not only decorative but informative and can educate.
Karla's art lectures also reflect history." - Jo, Denia
