Art Topics Lecture Series: Interiors in European painting from the late Middle Ages to Impressionism
Language: English with Chinese Translation
Admission Free. Reservation is required.
The objective of this research is to collect a set of works ranging from medieval art of the '300 to Impressionism that somehow depict interiors. Some paintings describe in details shapes, materials, patterns and proportions of the interiors. The given talk will be a journey visiting differences between the periods, schools and areas of origin, to understand the motivations of the executors and their passion for the subject. But most of all it tries to relive the atmosphere represented in the works, to analyse the details and understand how they lived, or wanted to live, in that particular time and place.
