July 15….Saturday Lectures Presents: The Life and Art of Pieter Bruegel with Christian Conrad
- While the Renaissance was occurring in Italy with such famous artists as Leonardo and Raphael, a different artistic awakening was occurring in Northern Europe led by innovative artists such as Pieter Bruegel the Elder. While the focus in Italy was primarily on religious works, the Netherlands and other northern locations favored secular images that often presented morals or ideas of the time through the art. Bruegel, who was considered the master of this period, used peasants as his primary source of inspiration, chronicling their lives and customs in his work. In addition to his own art, Pieter Bruegel is seen as beginning an age of painting, found not only in other artists but also in his two sons. Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation. Event is free to the public. Join us for coffee and donuts! LHUCA, 511 Ave K; 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
