Featured Artwork: Master of Barluenga, St. John on Patmos, ca. 1285
Depicting a scene from the life of St. John the Evangelist, this fresco was part of an image series embellishing a small Romanesque church in northeastern Spain. Joslyn’s fragment shows the saint in exile on the Island of Patmos, writing the Book of Revelation. The works of the Master of Barluenga (named for a cycle of church frescoes in that town) exemplify the late Spanish Romanesque style not yet affected by the Renaissance realism emerging in Italy. The unknown artist did not try to represent the historical occurrence as it might appear to the eye, but created a simplified vision of the event that suggests its sacred nature.
After the talk, guests will enjoy a heavenly menu of chicken saltimbocca with prosciutto, sage supreme sauce with sautéed fresh vegetables, orzo pasta, and hearty dinner rolls. Enjoy assorted gourmet cookies and coffee for dessert!
