Korte beschrijving: Lecture 'Saint Francis in Ecstasy by Francisco De Zurburán': Victor Stoichita, Art Historian at the University of Fribourg.

Victor Stoichita
Victor Stoichita  is art historian at the University of Fribourg and currently holds the Franqui Chair.The mystical encounter with the transcendent seems impossible to represent in its essence. Nevertheless many literary and visual art works in western culture refer to this encounter. These are paradoxical texts and problematic images because they try to reflect what cannot be seen or represented.

Victor Stoichita will exemplify this tension by discussing the painting' Saint Francis in Ecstasy', a work by the Spanish baroque painter artist Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664).
