NEW Leonardo, Michelangelo And Raphael

The three great artists of the High Renaissance have extraordinary and very different careers. They worked for popes and kings and their world-famous creations have influenced many painters and sculptors.  We will look at their paintings, sculptures and drawings and discuss these works in friendly informal sessions. Handouts will be provided for learners for each topic. This course will be delivered online using ZOOM.

NEW Artemisia & Judith-Women Artists In Europe

A painter of flags in the 15th century, the daughter of an artist in the 16th – few women artists are documented during the Renaissance. We will look at these early painters and also focus on artists such as Artemisia Gentileschi, a woman who succeeded against the odds and worked for Charles I and Judith Leyster, whose work for centuries was thought to be by a man.  No prior knowledge required. This course will be delivered online using ZOOM.
