17c Profane Baroque


"Karla's lecture on 17th century Spanish baroque profane painting opened my eyes on painters known for their religious art (Velazquez, Ribera...). 

We learned about other themes developed at the time : "everyday" life, poor children living in poverty because of the plague, still-life paintings popular with the "tourists" of the time. 

A combination of art and history makes for an interesting and informative lecture. Bravo Karla."
