Rome: Papal power and glory, by Dr Paula Nuttall - sold out

Talk | The Wallace Collection

Thursday 2 February 2017 - 14:30 until 15:30

The renaissance Papacy used art to express the power of the Church, but also for personal glorification, transforming the dilapidated medieval city of Rome into a fitting capital for Christendom. Focusing on the years around 1500, this lecture looks at the work of Botticelli and Perugino, Michelangelo, Raphael and Bramante in the service of the Popes, including such masterpieces as the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Stanze and St Peter’s Basilica. Dr Paula Nuttall is a course director at the Victoria & Albert Museum and associate lecturer at The Courtauld Gallery.

This is the second lecture in a series focusing on Italian City States in the Renaissance Period. You might also like to consider these lectures:
