Cima da Conegliano and Venetian Landscape Painting

October 21 at 12:10 and 1:10
West Building Lecture Hall

Sarah Hyde, development officer for planned giving, National Gallery of Art

Cima da Conegliano was a prolific painter in the Venetian Renaissance known for his bright colors and spatial harmony in his landscapes. While Cima is often compared to his contemporaries, such as Giovanni Bellini, his landscape paintings are particularly poetic, as he anchors his religious subjects in real places. Sarah Hyde investigates Cima’s landscapes within the context of recent scholarship on Venetian landscape painting. Hyde specifically addresses the artist’s depiction of trees as a way to unpack his vision of nature.
