The Grand Tour of Italy, Part V: The Age of Giants

May 20 and May 27 from 7:30-9:00 p.m.

The High Renaissance saw the realization of a perfected idealized style that was developed by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael. It is generally regarded as lasting from c.1500-1520. The High Renaissance moved from Florence to Rome, and was indeed dominated by these three giants of art history. Most of the classes on May 20 and 27 will focus on Michelangelo and Raphael with late Leonardo included. Time permitting we may be able to look at some of the lesser known figures who were working in Florence while patronage became dominated by the Renaissance papacy in Rome. The cost for early discounted registration for The Age of Giants, Part I, is $52/person postmarked by May 15. No refunds May 15 or thereafter

The Grand Tour of Italy, Part IV
Into the High Renaissance

Thursdays, May 6 and 13 from 7:30-9:00 p.m


In this section of the course we will complete Ghirlandaio, and then make our way into the High Renaissance with Leonardo da Vinci. Will we finish Leonardo in this part - no-but we can get into the eary Leonardo.

You do not need to have taken the previous installments to enjoy Part IV. Slide lectures will pick up with Ghirlandaio, and continue through the young Leonardo as he moved from Florence to Milan. Will we finish Leonardo in this section - no.

Why two classes this time instead of three? Has to do with my schedule being a little uncertain. These days will work, and we may add in another right after this. I will have to wait and see. Part IV won't complete the series, but we can continue on.

Registration is required. All illustrated lectures will be on Zoom. Every individual must register in advance.
You must choose the dates you wish to attend at the time of registration. If you have registered for two classes, and miss one, you may not apply the cost of the missed class towards another one. I need to have an accurate head count for each class. Prices up to May 15: $52/person for two nights; $26/person for one night. The price for late registration is $60/person for two classes; $30/person for one class. Several people have begun to pay by Zelle, and have found it very convenient. You may wish to try that. Payment must be received in order for you to be given the code to access the class. You will receive confirmation upon receiving your registration. Either the day before the course begins or the day of the first lecture that you register for, you will receive login information to access the class.

Dr. Martha Fielder 1412 El Campo Drive Dallas, Texas 75218 Tel: 214-321-9051 - home phone which is the best way to contact me or email: Text me at 214-536-9227. If you want to leave me a voice mail, call me on my home phone please. I do read my texts.

If you like, save yourself a stamp, and pay by Zelle. There is not a surcharge on that - at least not from me. I don't think your bank charges you to send money that way, but check with your own bank about that.

Please include a phone number. Also, please include whatever name that you show on Zoom. Generally, I can tell, but there was one or two last time that I was not quite sure about.

Come join us as we continue our journey!
