Athenaeum Music & Arts Library to host art history lectures in La Jolla

A five-week history course exploring the opposing schools of art in 17th century Europe will be presented by Linda Blair from 7:30-9 p.m. Tuesdays, Jan. 11-Feb. 8, at The Athenaeum Music and Arts Library, 1008 Wall Street.

A work by Caravaggio

The bitter conflict between the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter-Reformation produced opposing schools of art — pan-European Baroque versus 17th century Dutch Art. Blair’s discussions will shed light on the works of the day and answer questions from the audience.

Part 1: Images of Splendor: Caravaggio, Velázquez and Rubens. Part 2: Images of Silence: Vermeer. Part 3: Images of the Soul: Rembrandt.

The series is $50 for members, $75 non-members or $12 and $17 for individual classes. Register at (858) 454-5872.
