JULY 2020

 

With individual sessions led by the British Institute's History of Art Lecturers, this seminar is devoted to the artistic achievements of sixteenth-century Florentines. Masterpieces created by artists including Michelangelo, Andrea del Sarto, Fra Bartolomeo, Jacopo Pontormo, Suor Plautilla Nelli, Benvenuto Cellini, Giorgio Vasari and Giambologna established new canons of aesthetic beauty and artistic output, and have inspired Western art and imagination through to modern times. This seminar examines the rise of these legendary figures, the friendships and bitter rivalries that existed between them, and the legacies of powerful and discerning patrons from Florence’s leading houses and Medici ducal court. Participants will navigate the mastery and mannerism of the tumultuous Sixteenth century in Florence with the aid of our team's expertise and online video conferencing.
