- Great Artists of Spain
January 21, 2021
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Spain has produced extraordinary artists over the past four hundred years. This presentation by TSC artist, Tom Friedman, will examine the works of El Greco, Velazquez, Zurbaran, Murillo, Goya, Fortuny, Sorolla, Gris, Miro, Picasso and Dali housed in the major Madrid museums: The Prado, The Museo Reina Sofia, The Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Museo Sorolla. As an aid to understanding why we consider a small number of paintings to be masterpieces, the artists’ use of composition (placement of objects on the picture), tone (use of light and dark), color and intangibles (such as beauty, shock, inspiration or topical – generally social consciousness) will be discussed. At the conclusion of the presentation, the participant will not only have seen great art but understand the environment in which it was produced and why. Virtual class on Zoom. Thursday, 1/21 1:30 – 3:00 pm Fee. $5
