Learning to See: Renaissance and Baroque Masterworks from the Phoebe Dent Weil and Mark S. Weil Collection
The St. Louis Art Museum is currently hosting an exhibition of Renaissance and Baroque artworks donated by St. Peter’s Parishioner Phoebe Dent Weil. On Sunday, June 11th at 2:00 pm, there will be a special opportunity for interested St. Peter’s parishioners to tour the exhibit, with Phoebe herself as tour guide!
Come join us in this rare opportunity to see a truly remarkable collection which includes works from masters such as Rembrandt von Rijn and Albrecht Dürer.
The St. Louis Art Museum website has this to say about the exhibition:
From Rembrandt’s masterful Hundred Guilder Print to a colossal marble portrait of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, Learning to See brings together prints, drawings, and sculptures that explore intellectual and spiritual currents of European culture in the 15th-17th centuries. Subjects included in the exhibition range from mythology and mythical beings to traditional Christian themes. Prints and sculptures are presented together, uniting seemingly dissimilar works across time and techniques while exploring a variety of themes. Devotional works of art demonstrate the vital role that prints and sculpture played in the early modern church. Other sections feature objects representing the body, both nude and clothed, and works that reveal the technical aspects involved in the sculpting of terracotta and bronze.
Please sign up below, in the Undercroft, or by contacting the Church Office so that we can give a rough estimate of the number of attendees, and then join us at 2:00 pm on the 11th at the St. Louis Art Museum!
