“The Genius of Rembrandt (1606-1669),” a course sponsored by the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL), will be taught by the Reverend Dr. Kathleen V. Price from 1 to 3 p.m. on March 14, 21, and 28 (Wednesdays) at Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury in Irvington. The course will cover both secular and sacred works of this great Dutch Master, and will analyze how his personal life influenced his art and his theology. Though he was criticized during his lifetime for “ignoring the rules of beauty . . . creating a beauty which was not based on aesthetic rules but on the spiritual grandeur of his observation of nature and mankind,” Rembrandt’s work remains not only a feast for the eye, but an inspiration for the soul, says Price.

The Reverend Dr. Kathleen V. Price (B.S., M.Ed., M.Div., D.Min.), a native of Williamsburg, is in her 13th year as Rector of All Saints’ Church, Oakley Parish, in Avenue, Maryland; she is an accomplished retreat leader whose enthusiasm and zeal are contagious. Dr. Price’s undergraduate work focused on art history and her doctoral work on biblical art. In 2006, she was fortunate enough to be spending her sabbatical in Amsterdam at the time of the 400th anniversary of Rembrandt’s birth.
