POWER, PROPAGANDA AND PATRONAGE IN THE ART OF THE RENAISSANCE: REFORMATION AND COUNTER REFORMATION Douglas Skeggs Thursday 02 November 2017

Day 2: organised by West Mercia group

Thursday 2nd November 2017 -10 am - 3.30 pm  

THE REFORMATION AND COUNTER REFORMATION Art in the Garden of God: Cost: Including coffee and biscuits and lunch - £38 

500 years ago Martin Luther pinned his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany which led to religious upheaval in Europe. The power of the Renaissance families, together with the actions of avaricious, ambitious Popes led Luther to make his statements. The warring factions of Protestant Germany, Charles V - Holy Roman Emperor, the Italian Principalities and Francois, King of France were creating tumult in Europe – a momentous period in Europe’s history. The two days will look at many of the works of the period including Titian, Cranach, Raphael, Holbein, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Hals and Vermeer. A feast indeed.
