NARRATIVE ART: HIDDEN STORIES

NARRATIVE ART: HIDDEN STORIESWednesdays, February 1, 8, and 15member: $75, non-member: $90
Art often tells stories from myth and history on multiple levels. Ekphrasis is a device where literature follows art and vice versa. In this lecture, we will explore narrative art from antiquity to modern representations, each successive accounts reinterpreting and innovating with subtle details.

Hunt’s seventeen published books to date include Myth and Art in Ekphrasis, Caravaggio, Renaissance Visions: Myth and Art, and the best-selling Ten Discoveries That Rewrote History. Registration Form
