Oxford University-trained art history veteran Nigel McGilchrist will give a lecture on how tempera painting was replaced with oil painting in the 15th century and how oil paint made it possible for a deep color saturation that tempera paint could not offer. McGilchrist, who also worked for the Italian government’s Ministry of Arts, will be at the Santa Barbara Public Library on Sunday, February 26, at 2 p.m.
