Weekly Lectures – The Venetians

Venice

Venice

This summer’s lecture series takes a look at the artistic heritage that was born in Venice during the Italian Renaissance.  From this singular location, where East meets West, came a new emphasis on atmospheric effect, bringing in its wake an innovative language of color and opulence never before imagined.  Beginning with the Bellini family, these weekly lectures trace the work and life stories of Giorgione, Titian, and Veronese, among others, culminating with that other famous family of painters led by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, the last of Europe’s great fresco decorators.
