Art of Venice - CANCELLED

Friday 1 May 7.30pm - 8.45pm
With David Lowe

We will survey the development of Venetian art from the early Renaissance up to 1600.

This offers many opportunities for seeing how human consciousness developed at this time.

The Art of Veneziano is a glance back to an earlier period, one in which the magnificent Basilica of St. Mark arose from the mud of the lagoon. We will then look at the work of the Bellini family, the extraordinary and fantastic paintings of Mantegna, the influence of Giorgione and Antonello da Messina, moving on to the flowering of Venetian art in Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. Among the many things these Venetian artists contributed to the development of art was the use of rich colour in their paintings, making their works a feast for the eye.

All welcome, no need to book. Suggested donation £5/£3
