Museum Masterpieces: The National Gallery in London

The Great Courses DVD series Museum Masterpieces: The National Gallery in London will be shown on Mondays from 10:00 – 11:00 AM via Zoom.

Of all the world’s great art museums, the National Gallery, London is the only place where you can truly grasp the breathtaking scope of European painting between 1200 and 1900. Established in 1824, the National Gallery was commissioned as the people’s museum – a cultural institution meant to reflect the artistic legacy both of Great Britain and of the European continent. Inside its halls are more than 2,500 European paintings by some of Western civilization’s greatest masters, including Titian, Rubens, and Rembrandt.

Have you ever wondered what goes through a composer’s mind during those magical months when a musical composition is being notated on paper?

Persian Empire

The Great Courses DVD series Persian Empire will be shown on Wednesdays from 9:30 – 11:00 AM via Zoom.

What do we know about the Persian Empire?     For most of the past 2,500 years, we’ve heard about it from the ancient Greek perspective: a decadent civilization run by despots, the villains who lost the Battle of Marathon and supplied the fodder for bad guys in literature and film. But is this image really accurate?  Recent scholarship examining the Persian Empire from the Persian perspective has discovered a major force that has had a lasting influence on the world in terms of administration, economics, religion, architecture, and more.
