                 Titans of the Italian Renaissance

The High Renaissance in Italy was a 30-year tranquil period at the end of the 1400s through the early 1500s when the technical mastery to produce illusionistic art and the desire to make classically-inspired art came together in the hands of artists determined to be considered intellectuals not mere craftsmen. We'll look at a rich variety of works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael while exploring their personal stories, the times in which they lived, and their individual contributions to art. Celebrities courted by princes and popes, these men produced some of the most influential works of western art.

Sept 2  Leonardo da Vinci

Oct 7   Michelangelo

Nov 4   Raphael

We'll explore a number of Jewish painters, especailly those who depict Jewish subjects or Jewish stories.
