Three Renaissance Masters -
Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo
For decades, Doreen has taught art lovers
at all levels about the history of art. She is the pre-eminent living treasure
of our Artists' Guild. Don't miss the way she, and her extensive collection of
slides, can lift the curtain on the many mysteries of Renaissance art in Italy.
How did three different personalities reach lasting fame in a time when
politics, intrigue, criminal behavior among the upper classes, and wars among
city-states all threaten to drive into chaos the land that would become Italy?
Doreen Smith will be your guide through the maze of power and personality.
- Learn how Michelangelo, who wanted more than anything else to sculpt, found
himself over 60 feet above the floor of the Sistine Chapel floor for years
painting into fresh plaster.
- Learn how Leonardo, who mainly catered to a famous family, was at heart a
scientist, managed to express his genius.
- Learn why the work of Raphael, who died young, is now scattered across dozens,
if not hundreds of museums, even in the day, he was the Pope's painter.
