Enjoy the last of four virtual lectures presented in honor of the exhibition Vittore Carpaccio: Master Storyteller of Renaissance Venice

The de'Barbari six-block woodcut view of Venice is one of the great conceptual and technological achievements of its time. The view, which is still viable today as a plan of Venice, was created by a team of artisans working under the guidance of the master.

To produce this monumental view of the city, new innovations were necessary in both papermaking and printing. A careful exploration of the woodcut reveals significant information about how the city viewed itself in the context of Italy at the turn of the sixteenth century.

This Zoom event will be recorded. A link to the recording will be emailed to all registered participants afterwards. Live captions (CART) will be provided. Registration is required.
