Symposium 2022

Spanning over three centuries, we will explore the Caravaggesque and the flourishing style of Baroque painting that swept across 17th century Europe, the art and fashion of Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun and Adélaïde Labille Guiard of the 18th century, and finish with Post-Impressionist Paul Cézanne and his influence from one century to the next.
