About event

The devil is said to be in the details.

This statement also applies to painting. Virtually every picture of the Middle Ages or the Renaissance is a rebus, with political, religious or instructive content that is not easy to unravel in our time. In addition, mystical stories are often associated with art objects. Often, they are given paranormal opportunities to cause fires, madness and the death of owners.

September 11th at 7:00 pm we invite you to the lecture "The Da Vinci Code: the most mysterious paintings in history"

At the meeting, you will learn that conceal Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, why Mikhail Vrubel constantly wrote demons, which of the Russian portraits had a bad reputation during Pushkin's times, and that Jan Van Eyck encrypted in their interiors.

From whom did Leonardo da Vinci write Jesus and Judas in his "Last Supper", whether or not the black square of Malevich is so brilliant and how to understand the surrealistic works of Salvador Dali.

And more!

  • Is it possible to hide biblical characters in the Paris cafe image?
  • What is the symbolic meaning of the threesome in painting?
  • Why can't you scare kids with matches?
  • Were there aliens in Tuscany?

All these questions will be answered by Viennese art expert Daria Sabitova, founder of @Art Salon Vienna.

Seating is limited, registration is required.
The lecture is held in Russian.
