- Discover one of the most influential revolutions in the art world

It is cold outside but what a perfect time to join your ICDC friends for a

private tour to discover the National Gallery of Art. Our tour this month

will focus on Italian Renaissance paintings from the 16th century. In the

early sixteenth century, the center of patronage in the arts shifted to

Rome. Pope Julius II recruited the finest artists of the day for his

ambitious building program; Raphael and Michelangelo continued and expanded

Leonardo's High Renaissance style, characterized by classical balance,

controlled movement, and an elevated conception. Raphael learned from

Leonardo that a fully resolved composition was attained only after intensive

study of the human figure.

 

This is also a great opportunity to meet other ICDC members who appreciate

art while enjoying a meal in the Cascade Cafe. Our tours of the National

Gallery of Art are one of our most popular events and always sell out well
