    Recording of Transcribing Titian: Live Painting Demonstration with Maggie Siner from Venice! 

    Instructor: Visiting artist Maggie Siner

    Friday, November 6, 10 - 11:30 am EST 

     

    Watch a recording of this fascinating and instructive demonstration with painter Maggie Siner!  From her studio in Venice, Italy, Maggie will take us through a process of dissecting and transcribing the Venetian master Titian’s painting “Venus with a Mirror”, which is at the National Gallery of Art in DC.  

     

    Transcribing the work of the great masters who came before us is the most valuable key to unlocking the magic and mystery that makes a masterpiece so powerful. A transcription is not a copy – it is a means for getting at the structure, divisions, synergies, relationships, repetitions, and rhythms that keep us moving through the painting and conveying its message. 

     

    Maggie’s painted transcription demonstration began with a greeting from her balcony in Venice and then moved into an overview of the geometry, gesture, and large movements in the painting, and then move into some of the smaller visual events. Some drawn transcriptions of the painting were prepared in advance and shared with participants before the demo begins. The demonstration ends with a Q&A and a peek into her Venetian studio.

     

    Participants will be encouraged to engage in their own transcriptions of masterworks after watching the discoveries made by Maggie.
