Description: James A. Welu, Director Emeritus of the Worcester Art Museum, Twelfth Night: A Netherlandish Tradition
Twelfth Night, the festive celebration marking the end of the Christmas season, has long been a favorite feast day in the Low Countries. There during the 17th century both Dutch and Flemish painters captured some of the most memorable images of this popular family celebration. This illustrated lecture explores the best of these works to learn about the excitement of the event and some of the age-old themes associated with family life.
