Life Changing Messages Transmitted in Art

Carpe Diem – Seize the Day

Memento Mori – Remember You must Die

These are just some of the many expressions and exclamations dating to ancient times. How has Art attempted to convey these far-reaching, significant concepts?  Skulls, hourglasses, clocks, flickering candles, fruit, flowers..... these are symbolic objects designed to remind the viewer of their mortality, of the shortness and fragility of life.  Every object in a painting holds a message that the artist meant to pass along to the viewer.  Learn how to read between the lines of these messages!

This Art Talk looks at the projection of life-changing message through imagery.


Speaker Bio

Lior Florence Italy Duomo

Lior Aviv
Hi there and welcome. My name is Lior and thank you for joining my lecture.

Though I have graduated in art history (M.A. Dean's Honors), working now on my PhD and am an authorized tour guide for Florence working with Tuscany Tours, I consider myself to be less a supplier of information and more a reminder.  During our talk, we will remind ourselves how to see and feel art.  We will do that not only through knowledge, facts and anecdotes, but also through our hearts and minds.

Rediscovering this gift which is always within us will ensure that when you leave the beauty of Florence behind, you will take with you the beauty you have found within yourself and continue discovering beauty throughout the world.

You can meet Lior in person when you travel with Tuscany Tours - either in a small group or via customized independent travel!
