Fake Art & Forged Antiquities
Dutch artist Han van Meegeren holds the distinction of being the master Vermeer forger of the 1930s. In 2003 the British Museum would buy a fake statue. More will follow.

Vincent Van Gogh - the Artist and His Life
Unlike the works of Picasso which can be explained by the loves in his life, the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh can best be understood by where he lived and worked. I will discuss ‘The Starry Night’ from his stay in Saint-Rémy as well as other notable paintings.

Albrecht Dürer - German Renaissance Artist
Albrecht Dürer was undoubtedly the greatest Northern European Renaissance artist in the late 15th century. Best known for his woodcut prints with religious and mythological themes, he also wrote books on geometry and human proportions.

Angels in Art - US Postage Stamps
The first US postage stamps were issued in 1847: Benjamin Franklin on a five cent stamp and George Washington on a ten cent stamp. The first angel (a weathervane of an angel holding a trumpet) appeared in 1965 on the US Christmas stamp. Other angel stamps would follow in subsequent years.

Ancient Columns & Greek Revival Architecture
Temples were built in ancient Greece using three orders of columns. Wanting to emulate this style, Thomas Jefferson was the architect of neo-classical buildings in the United States.

Washington in MFA Art of Americas Wing
The MFA’s new wing is devoted to the art of North, South and Central America. This Boston museum is well known for its holdings of paintings, silver, and furniture from Colonial New England. I will discuss paintings devoted to George Washington (General and President).

Romanticism : Emotion and Attitude
The Romantic Movement in the 19th century was contrary to the Rococo style of the previous century and became a revival of many styles in art, literature and music.

The Mystery of Da Vinci's Last Supper
Dan Brown’s "Da Vinci Code" brought to light the idea that Mary Magdalene might be Jesus’ wife, by His right side at the Last Supper. If so, where is the apostle John? Some possible answers revealed.

The Mona Lisa
The 'Mona Lisa' by Leonardo da Vinci is an enigmatic painting raising questions as to the identity of the sitter, why Napoleon’s obsession and inspiring a song and movie in modern times. What really lies behind that mysterious Mona Lisa smile?

The Scream by Edvard Munch
'The Scream' was an 1893 painting that became an iconic symbol for a stressful life in twentieth and twenty-first century pop culture. Did the Norwegian Expressionist painter Edvard Munch intend for 'The Scream' to have such mass appeal?
