Instructor: Dede Taylor

Dates: Tuesdays; Jan 26; Feb 2, 9, 23 (no class on Feb 16th)

Time: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Location: Hope Lutheran Church

Course Info: This four-week course will explore the 16th and 17th centuries in Hapsburg Spain through its arts, with a focus on painting. The period is called the “Golden Age” for the enthusiastic patronage of the kings and the virtuosity of artists such as El Greco, Zurbarán, Sanchez Cotán, and Velázquez, even as the monarchy itself was in decline. We will put the period in historical and cultural context, touching on sculpture, architecture, literature, court politics and religious philosophy. Looking deeply at representative (and simply gorgeous!) paintings in a variety of genres, we will analyze their artistic form and technique and seek to unveil their meanings.

Class Format: Lecture and discussion

Readings: None.
