Event description

Description

Despite Vasari’s characterisation of Filippino Lippi as ‘a painter of most beautiful intelligence and most lovely invention’ his status as one of the most innovative and accomplished artists of the late fifteenth century – famous in his lifetime, employed by a distinguished clientele at home and abroad – has attracted considerably less critical attention than either his master Botticelli, or his father Fra Filippo.

With this in mind, Filippino Lippi: Beauty, Invention and Intelligence will bring together a group of scholars to discuss this most versatile, original and dazzling of renaissance artists. The conference will offer new insights into Filippino’s artistic relationship to Botticelli and his Lucchese patrons. Questions of style and vision will be explored with reference to his responses to Netherlandish painting, his treatment of space and light, aspects of his chapel decoration and his artistic legacy.


The event will be followed by a dirnks reception.
