Art Lecture: Truth and Beauty

Monday, July 16th | 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Pre-Raphaelites and Old Masters at the Legion of Honor

Docent Virginia Ernster, from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, will speak about the Legion of Honor exhibit Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters.

She’ll speak about the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, who eschewed the idealized figures popularized by Raphael and other High Renaissance artists, preferring to reflect the simplicity, spirituality, and beauty they found in late medieval and early Renaissance art.
