Friends of the Uffizi: Renaissance Florence and the Influence of Antiquity with Emily Fenichel, Ph.D.
Sunday, Mar. 18 / 3:00–4:00 pm
Boca Raton Museum of Art

The word “renaissance” means rebirth and refers to the revival of classical antiquity cultures during the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries in Italy. As scholars, humanists, and the wealthy began to take a new interest in the cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome, they also commissioned artists to create works influenced by this new knowledge. This talk considers some of the ways in which artists and patrons used Classical Antiquity in Renaissance Florence, focusing on the contributions of artists such as Brunelleschi, the Pollaiuolo Brothers, and Botticelli.

Seating is limited.
