Gallery Course: From Renaissance to Baroque
In anticipation of LACMA's upcoming exhibition focusing on great painters of the baroque period (Bodies and Shadows: Caravaggio and HIs Legacy, which opens November 11), brush up on your understanding of Renaissance art. Artists of the Renaissance period moved from using older techniques to using a mode of representation that produced art that is hailed today as among the world's finest. The baroque artists who followed that era built upon its legacy and added innovations of their own. An introduction by educator Mary Lenihan will be followed by a private tour of the permanent collection.
