New online Masterclasses: Sacred Art, God at the Gallery
Throughout the ages, Christian art served the twofold objective of paying homage to God whilst serving as a didactic illustration for the population.
These illuminating sessions will introduce participants to how different artistic traditions from countries such as Spain, Italy, and Flanders have depicted the most significant events in the Bible. Formidable traditions governed the representation of religious scenes, and yet artists of the past continually renewed them through creative engagement with established conventions.
During these three non-sequential sessions, we will analyze in-depth works from the 13th century to the 18th century, including paintings by Bosch, Van der Weyden, Fra Angelico, El Greco, Zurbarán, and Velázquez.
