Would you like to read and understand paintings through its symbols? Since the 15th century, artists have used details in paintings which are endowed with a specific meaning. It can be religious, spiritual, an expression of luxury, the passing of time, corruption etc. Whether a colour, a reference to the animal or natural worlds, a particular type of fabric, food and beverages, etc. we will explore a selection of paintings and decipher their messages. An experience to art history.
