Our Creative Conversations talk series returns this week! 🗨️

On Wednesday 28th April, 7pm, Dr Rebekah Compton wil be in conversation with Dr Claudia Tobin on depictions of Venus and 'verdant virtues'.

Venus is a goddess of nature, who resides in green landscapes responsive to her powers over spring and regeneration. This talk explores the challenges for 15th century artists of using green pigments, and will include a demonstration of how these copper based pigments transform into paint.

[05/08/20]   Dear Seniors,

On behalf of the Department of Art and Architectural History and the Program in Historic Preservation and Community Planning we very enthusiastically invite you to join us Friday afternoon at 4 pm to celebrate you with a toast (unfortunately, under the circumstances, that means BYOB). We are very sad we can't do this in person, but we can't let you "go" without a celebration. If you feel like wearing your white dresses and white tuxes (probably not...) please do so, but at least let us join together. Wear whatever you want, as long as you wear something.

Remember, 4 pm, EST on Friday May 8.

See you then!

Many thanks to the department of Art & Architectural History for my recent trip to Florence and for support to be part of the Medici Archive Project. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn where to find all sorts of documents (baptismal records, convent inventories, tax records, court cases, guild statutes) and to learn how to read the handwritings of men and women from the 15th and 16th centuries.
