Eight of the Greats – Art History Lectures


Art historian Suzanne Tevlin will be offering another delightful series of lectures to get you through the cold winter months.

Starting on January 10, and continuing for eight weeks, Eight of The Greats will include a smorgasbord of Suzanne’s favourite artists. From the entrancing Bronzino, to the dangerous Caravaggio, and the elegant Tony van Dyck, we will go on to discover Giovanna Garzoni, Chardin, Ingres, Egon Schiele, and Paula Rego.

$250 for all eight lectures. (Individual lectures not available.)
