Speaker: Dr. Meredith Shimizu

Sunday, March 31, 2019, 2 pm

Cost: $10, suggested donation

In this the fourth of five lectures in her 2018-2019 art history series focusing on the Northern Renaissance period, Dr. Shimizu examines Pieter Bruegel's “Labors of the Months”, which was commissioned by the wealthy Antwerp merchant Niclaes Jonghelinck and intended as part of a large-scale decorative scheme for the interior of his house. Bruegel is considered the greatest Flemish painter of the 16th century, with his landscape paintings, and vigorous, often witty scenes of peasant life, particularly renowned.
