Event details

This lecture will present six of the most significant Italian sculptors of the 15th through the 17th centuries.  Men all born into turbulent social and political times, expressing their era with visionary ideas that would eventually change the visual concept of the human figure for all time.  Figures expressing profound passions, a heroic sense of self – the dynamics of the human experience.  Each artist a quixotic original in technique and design.  All giants of their trade and poets of form.

In two sessions we will present a brief overview of the life and work of:

-Jacopo della Quercia  (1374-1438)

-Donatello  (1386-1466)

-Andrea del Verrocchio  (1435-1488)

-Michelangelo  (1475-1564)

-Benvenuto Cellini  (1500-1571)

-Gian Lorenzo Bernini  (1598-1680)
