ArtScapades: Masters of the Northern Renaissance

Category: Speakers & Lecture Series
Location: Adrian Lamb Room

ArtScapades, a five-part art lecture program made possible through a sponsorship from the Friends of the New Canaan Library, continues on Monday, December 10, with Part 2: "Masters of the Northern Renaissance." The lecture will take place at 7 p.m. in the Adrian Lamb Room.

“Masters of the Northern Renaissance” will explain how Renaissance art styles moved through northern Europe and adapted to local customs. The works of van Eyck, Bosch, Durer, Holbein, and Bruegel will be explored.

Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman of ArtScapades will moderate the series.  They began teaching art appreciation in 1998 in the New Canaan public school system.  In 2009, they began sharing their knowledge with adults who wanted to learn the basics of art to make museum trips more enjoyable.  The New Canaan Library is welcoming them back for a fourth time.
