Giovanni Bellini, Pieter Bruegel, Rembrandt and Cézanne. We will explore some of the work of the four artists. Each was born in a different century and a different country. Each stands, to many, as one of the masters of art within the European tradition. Examples of paintings and drawings by each will be presented, and we will ask what is the impact of each work, what might have been the intention of the artist in his time and how we ‘read’ these works now.
