The High Renaissance was a brief, tranquil, 30-year period at the end of the 15th and start of the 16th centuries, when the technical mastery to produce illusionistic art and the desire to make classically-inspired art came together in the hands of profound thinkers. Join us as Wendy Evans leads us in looking at a rich variety of images by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael, while exploring their personal stories and the times in which they lived, as well as their contributions to art. Celebrities courted by princes and popes, these men produced some of the most influential works of western art.
Wendy Evans was raised among the museums of London, England, and holds an advanced degree from Oxford University. She has taught art history at Wayne State University and other institutions in Michigan, and is a long-time docent volunteer at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Wendy is known fondly for her British accent and crazy socks, and for the passion for art she loves to share with others in her richly illustrated presentations.
