Class: Kerrin Meis - Masters of Light: Sargent, Sorolla & Zorn

Friday, November 1, 2013 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

3 Fridays • Nov. 1-15 • 10:00-12:00pm • $100



John Singer Sargent, expatriate American, Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida of Spain, and Anders Zorn of Sweden are recognized as brilliant portraitists. It is, however, their scenes of everyday life and the luminosity that results from their handling of paint that deserve our attention. All three were widely traveled and their paintings reveal much about the locales they explored. This class was inspired by the exhibit opening at the Legion of Honor on Nov. 9 about Anders Zorn. Students may arrange a group field trip to the museum. Field trip not included in fee.

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.
