Lecture: Rembrandt, Biblical Stories, and the Everyday

Rembrandt carefully observed the world around him, his family, people on the street, animals, and landscape. He captured people’s attitudes and emotions in abundant drawn sketches and prints. Dr. Nadine Orenstein, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will look at how Rembrandt’s study of the everyday informed his approach to Biblical narratives.

Courses for Young Professionals: From Flanders to Florence - Renaissance North and South

Lecture: Giambattista to Giandomenico Tiepolo: from Tradition to Innovation in Christian Narrative

Though often regarded as merely a passive follower of his father Giambatista Tiepolo's art, Giandomenico in fact innovated in his own right. Nowhere does this surface better than in his series of almost two dozen engravings on the story of the holy family's Flight into Egypt. Altering a subject whose dramatic possibilities were almost downplayed in the history of painting, Giandomenico instead emphasized the wonder inherent in travel, the risks Mary and Joseph faced in protecting their infant son and the dangers they undertook when wandering into new lands.

Free. Reservations are not required but seating is limited and offered on a first-come first-served basis.
