September 3rd: Thursday Art Date With Rain - The Old Masters

Mona Daffy


Hello Friends! 😊😊

September 3rd's theme for our art date is: The Old Masters (please visit Rain's Garden on Thursday September 3rd to post your link!).

From artsy.net: The term "Old Masters" generally refers to the most recognized European artists—mostly painters—working between the Renaissance and 1800. An informal designation (and not a specific art historical style or movement), this category includes artists who fall within Gothic Art, the Early, High, and Northern Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque, the Dutch "Golden Age," Rococo, Neoclassicism, and Romanticism. Accordingly, Old Masters refers to a range of the most seminal figures in Western art history, from Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Albrecht Dürer to Caravaggio, Rembrandt, and Jacques-Louis David.

Here is a link to a List of the Old Masters if you want to do some more research for ideas!
