Lectures and Book Signings
Writing the History of Venetian Renaissance Sculpture: New Approaches to the Study of Sculpture

May 9 at 3:30
East Building Auditorium
Anne Markham Schulz, visiting scholar, department of history of art and architecture, Brown University

Anne Markham Schulz's lecture, though focused on the Venetian Renaissance, considers topics relevant to the sculpture of all epochs. These topics include the nature of evidence and the relative importance of different kinds of evidence to the practice of art history, non-finito (the deliberate lack of finish in sculpture), the existence of "young-age" as well as "old-age" style, and the collaboration of painters and the influence of their techniques in the making of sculpture. Examples are drawn from the newly published History of Venetian Renaissance Sculpture, ca. 1400 to 1530.

A book signing of The History of Venetian Renaissance Sculpture, ca. 1400–1530 follows.
