kinneret_zohar-lahav.jpg
Kinneret Zohar-Lahav was born in Bombay to Israeli diplomat parents. Growing up in foreign lands gave her a unique view in understanding the history of art, its present and future as the artists saw it and the context in which a piece was created.
 
Looking at a picture, she enters an adventure. An artwork is a window into another dimension of time and place. This will be the manner and method of her art appreciation course and her invitation to explore the finest collections of art in Europe.

28 May  ‎ - REMBRANDT (HOUSE) MUSEUM, AMSTERDAM
Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn is one of the finest 17th Century ‎masters of Holland.  We will explore his work, his understanding of the ‎human condition and his unique composition.‎

11 June - EDWARD MUNCH MUSEUM, OSLO, NORWAY
Munch’s painting is the beating heart of  Norway. Nature is an integral ‎element in the Artist’s vocabulary.  His fear of women and his yearning ‎and lust for them gives us personal interpretation of the symbolism.‎

25 June - TOULOUSE LAUTREC MUSEUM ALBI, FRANCE
Through the eyes of Lautrec we are led to see the intimate, lonely ‎existence of the Parisian salon dweller.  He was the painter who brought ‎the gutters of Paris into the Museums.‎

9 July -  PRADO MUSEUM, MADRID, SPAIN
The pride of every Spaniard: displaying under Velasquez the glorious ‎reflection of Spain as a world superpower. Under the brush of Goya we ‎see the reflection of a “has been nation” when Goya uses no “Photoshop” ‎to beautify reality!‎
