Spain has produced extraordinary artists over the past 400 years. 
Tallahassee Senior Center artist, Tom Friedman, examines the works of El Greco, Velazquez, Zurbaran, Murillo, Goya, Fortuny, Sorolla, Gris, Miro, Picasso and Dali housed in the major Madrid museums: The Prado, The Museo Reina Sofia, The Thyssen-Bornemisza, and the Museo Sorolla. As an aid to understanding why we consider a small number of paintings to be masterpieces, the artists’ use of composition (placement of objects on the picture), tone (use of light and dark), color and intangibles (such as beauty, shock, inspiration or topical – generally social consciousness) will be discussed. At the conclusion, participants will understand the environment in which art was produced and why.  

Thursday, January 21, 1:30 - 3:00 p.m.
Fee: $5
