What is it to see others? Under the guidance of Leonardo da Vinci, the greatest master of seeing, we will explore rational ways to understand perception, and then we will apply his formulas to help us analyze da Vinci’s own paintings, and those of American landscape artists such as Santa Fe’s own Georgia O’Keeffe. But what is it to see ourselves? Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice gives us another way to see, with characters who struggle with their own perspectives on each other and themselves. Deeply intelligent and funny, Austen understands people and their self-deceptions better than anyone. In the end, we ask ourselves: what happens when we see well, or when we fail to see?
