POWER, PROPAGANDA AND PATRONAGE IN THE ART OF THE RENAISSANCE:
REFORMATION AND COUNTER REFORMATION - II
DOUGLAS SKEGGS Thursday 02 November 2017

To be held in the Big Classical, Cheltenham College, Bath Road, Cheltenham GL53 7LD

 500 years ago Martin Luther pinned his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg,  Germany which lead to religious upheaval in Europe. The power of the Renaissance families, together with the actions of avaricious, ambitious Popes lead 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. It promises to be a feast indeed.
