Renaissance to Romanticism
5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series
Saturday, September 25, 2010, 11:15 am
FREE for Gallery Members / $10 for non-members
With Curator of Education Mariann Smith
From the early fourteenth century to the mid nineteenth century, we follow the path of art from the Renaissance, with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, to the Baroque era, with the work of Peter Paul Rubens and Diego Velázquez, to the frivolous and risqué Rococo, and, finally, to Romanticism, with its dramatic scenes of death, terror, and passion.
The 5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series continues through March 12, 2011. Throughout the series, Curator of Education Mariann Smith, Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector, and guest speakers will use the Gallery’s Collection and other selected works to tell the story of art from ancient times through today.
Doors for all lectures open at 11 am.
