The Virgin Mary in European Painting:

 

Marian art is a central theme in the history of European painting. This seminar will look at the history of how Mary has been depicted in the painting of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and in more modern movements. It will discuss these paintings not only from the perspective of Christian theology and Marian devotion, but also from the point of view of the academic history of art. This seminar has no readings; it will consist of close examination of high-resolution images.

Dates: Wednesdays on October 28, November 11, and December 2.
Time: 5:30-6:45pm PST
Location: Zoom

**This seminar is free and open to all Cal, GTU, and St. Mary’s students.
