Online lecture: Saint Nicholas

Wednesday 24 November 2021 Follow the multifaceted iconography of the popular saint and his entourage. Nicholas is without a doubt an important and popular saint, to this day. He is a prominent character in both the Orthodox and the Catholic Church and his life is full of legends. He is said to have revived three children from a brine vessel, saved marines from certain death at sea and provided marriageable daughters of an impoverished father with a dowry. The story of Nicholas inspired a tradition that continues to this day in many countries. Painters in the Low Countries depicted the feast of Saint Nicholas in the seventeenth century, at which the saint is strikingly not present himself. However, details such as sweets and sprinkles. In this lecture you will see how Saint Nicholas was depicted in art from the Middle Ages to the Baroque. You also follow the tradition of the festival from Jan Steen until now and we are talking about the origin and development of Zwarte Piet. And no, the primal Black Pete has nothing to do with soot. Time: 8 pm. Costs: € 10,-
