BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- How the Holy City of Jerusalem shaped art in the Middle Ages is the focus of a lecture Monday, Nov. 7, at the Osilas Gallery in Bronxville.
Charles T. Little, Bronxville resident and curator of Medieval Art and the Cloisters at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will give the talk, "Jerusalem in the Middle Ages."
It is also the subject of the Met's exhibition, "Jerusalem 1000-1400: Every People Under Heaven."
Little will share his insights and expert knowledge of the Met's exhibition, mainly of the role of Jerusalem as a "formative and exciting artistic center," a release said.
Of particular interest to Little is how in the time frame the exhibition covers, Jerusalem was the "center of the world and the artistic crossroads of three great religious traditions."
The Met's exhibition includes pieces that represent the vibrancy, holiness and frequently vibrant city of Jerusalem that would have been influential in the art of people who lived there in the Middle Ages, the release explains.
Monday's lecture is at 7 p.m. at the gallery, Concordia College, 171 White Plains Road, Bronxville.
Tickets may be purchased at silasgallery.org or by calling Elizabeth Vranka at 914-337-9300, ext. 2173.
There will be light refreshments at the event.
