The Bible Illuminates Art
Inspired Reflections

The Bible has long been a source of profound inspiration for artists, especially the Old Masters. Over the centuries, their images have developed into a rich and enduring tradition. The Bible Illuminates Art Series helps art lovers of all faiths better understand these accounts in an artistic context. This autumn in an all-new series we will explore the wonderful collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest along topical themes. Inspired Reflections will deepen your appreciation of these works as we study the background, style, influences and innovations of individual artists while considering the painting’s subject matter.

Each class begins with a lecture illustrated by a PowerPoint presentation of paintings that relate to the topic. Then we move into the galleries for a closer look at the art.

Everyone is welcome – the lectures are open to all. Attend only a few or the whole series.

No need to register in advance.

Come when you can!
