Getting under their Skins: finding character and story in Renaissance art Sarah Dunant Wednesday 31 January 2018

 

1ST LECTURE TIME: 2:30 pm

2ND LECTURE TIME: 8:00 pm

 


In this sumptuously illustrated lecture, Sarah Dunant, international bestselling author of the Italian renaissance shares the secrets of her trade. To recreate the past as a living, breathing place Sarah has visited churches, archives, museums and art galleries all over Italy. 

Here she tells the story of her discoveries; how the decoding of old paintings alongside the work of the most modern historians helped her to penetrate hidden worlds inside the Renaissance, finding wonder and drama in ordinary lives and exploring the complexities of politics and religion along with emotion, the senses and the heady appetites of body and soul.
