                 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.

Wendy's A Range of Visions
Art by Jewish Artists from the 1800s on

Starting in the 1800s Jews had unprecedented opportunities to embark on a variety of new careers. Some became artists, many gaining acclaim for their work. We'll explore a number of Jewish painters, especailly those who depict Jewish subjects or Jewish stories. We'll look at several Jewish sculptors from Europe, the US, and Israel, and incude a few Jewish artists and designers whose creations impacted our daily lives.
