Painters, poets, and musicians alike have long sought to capture human emotions through the modulation of gesture, metaphor, and melody. Focusing on the intertwined aesthetic theories of the visual arts and music in the 17th century--a time of debates between the relative powers of reason and emotion--we'll explore the depiction of the passions in Baroque canvases and compositions. This gallery talk will be led by graduate student lecturer, Ruth Ezra.
