WEBINAR: Armchair Art Tours//Dutch Painting Pt. I
18 Mar

WEBINAR: Armchair Art Tours//Dutch Painting Pt. I

Join artist and lecturer Sean Forester for this webinar that will focus on the Flemish and Dutch old masters from Van Eyck to Vermeer.

With his meticulous observation, vibrant colour, and complex symbolism, Jan Van Eyck (1390-1441) was the father of oil painting. We will look at the Ghent Alterpiece, Arnolfini Portrait, and Madonna of Chancellor Rolin, as well as paintings by Rogier van der Weyden and Hans Memling. Many of these artworks are in the ancient Belgium towns of Brughes and Ghent, which Classical Pursuits/Worldwide Quest will visit in our fall 2022 tour. In the second half of the webinar, we will study the artworks of Vermeer and other masters of the Dutch Golden Age who were inspired by Flemish painting.

It is fascinating to compare Van Eyck's detailed realism with Vermeer's impressionistic vision.
