Join award-winning lecturer Sonia Halpern to learn about the thematic and stylistic components of this artistic period rich with divine treasures!
The Renaissance period (15th - 16th centuries) witnessed a flurry of artistic production in Italy and northern Europe, which resulted in some of the finest art ever created. With the predominance of the Church, the art almost always contained religious themes based on both the Old and New Testaments.
Through illustrated lectures, this course will highlight many of these beautiful paintings and sculptures, and offer insight into the spiritual values of the time. Works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael will be featured, along with those by many prolific artists who sought to make both descriptive and interpretive imagery meant to inspire spiritual devotion.
