*Sold out* Living Room Salon | Pigment, Power, and Pathos: Red from the Renaissance to Rococo

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo - A Dance In The Country

*This Olio is sold out*

Red is the color, par excellence, of desire and subjectivity. Why is that? Associated with lust, hunger, and rage, red is nonetheless seen differently by every set of eyes.  The color of royalty and religious suffering, red acquired urgent significance from the 15-18th centuries, as new dyes from Mexico ignited trade wars abroad and adorned kings and courtiers in Europe. Join art historian Ted Barrow for an examination of red, exploring how color conveyed meaning and determined power relationships in Western Art. This wide-ranging exploration will engage key works from Bronzino to Watteau. 




Location: Living Room

Address will be shared with attendees.

Living Room Salons are members only and take place in an apartment to provide an intimate learning environment.




Interdisciplinary Learning with the Best Professors


Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
