"Join us to explore the lives and art of four amazing artists. This time we will cover a broad spectrum from Leonardo da Vinci and the History of Renaissance in Italy, the intriguing art of Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and the history of Mexico, the hypnotic art of the tormented Vincent Van Gogh and the genius/crazy art of Salvador Dali and the surrealism movement. The class, a four weekly sessions, will also touch on the Jewish aspect of these artists. As before, all the lectures put in perspective the artists' personal life, their artistic style and how it is positioned relative to other art movements of the time, and world historical events that influenced the artist and the world of art.
