2 Fridays: June 2 & 9, 2017 • 10:00 am - 12:00 pm • $75

An in-depth  exploration of European masterpieces housed permanently in this gem of a museum. We survey the foundation of the Legion, recent changes in stewardship. We look at European painting from the Medieval and Renaissance periods, 17th and 18thc works, and paintings from the 19thc discussed  in terms of provenance, style and the socio-economic milieu in which they were created. Works by Fra Angelico, El Greco, Rembrandt, Rubens, Watteau, Monet and Cezanne.

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
