Art: Witches in Northern European Art

Why are witches and covens such popular subjects of art during the Northern European Renaissance? We will discuss this intriguing issue by looking at the works of Hans Baldung Grien, Albrecht Durer and others. We will explore paintings and prints depicting witches and examine cultural attitudes that led to the production of such eye-catching works. Ann Shifflet, instructor at the Columbus College of Art and Design, is our presenter.
