The Life and Art of Johannes Vermeer with Christian Conrad

Johannes Vermeer (October 1632 – December 1675)
Considered one of the great artists of the Golden Age of Dutch painting, Vermeer’s name stands out as one of the most recognizable in Western Art. However, much of Vermeer’s life remains a mystery with very little biographic information uncovered: to this day, only 34 works have been attributed to the artist. Vermeer’s works continues to be highly studied, with newer theories embracing the possible use of scientific-based instruments of the time in the construction of the work. Join us as we examine the life of Vermeer along with the artists who were around him during the middle of the seventeenth century.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
