12@12 with Caroline Van Cauwenberge
Join the Arthur Ross Gallery for an inspiring gallery talk in 12 minuets flat!
In Dominicus van Tol’s charming “niche” painting, two young children are blowing soap bubbles at a stone window ledge. The playful scene, however, has a deeper meaning. The fragile bubbles symbolize the transience of life, a theme reinforced by the skull and hourglass placed on the mantelpiece in the background.

Caroline Van Cauwenberge’s 12-minute talk on Van Tol’s Children Blowing Bubbles at a Window will focus on pictorial motifs used by the artist and the symbolic meaning behind them.
