The heavenly 18th century frescoes of Tiepolo and his gifted son, Giandomenico and the delightful genre scenes of Guardi and Longhi will also be discussed in the context of piety, politics, and commerce of the Queen of the Adriatic.

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years and now lectures for the College of Marin and Dominican University. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
