Event description

Description

Venice was exceptional amongst the city-states of Renaissance Italy in being a republic and yet ruled by a prince or doge. This lecture will examine how the ethos of La Serenissima, its guiding myths and its social structure, shaped Venetian patronage. Paul Hills, Emeritus Professor of Renaissance Art at the Courtauld, will emphasise how attitudes to wealth, time and tradition are manifested in Venice’s architecture and art, from the Byzantine Basilica of San Marco to the paintings of Bellini and Titian.

This is the 4th lecture in a series focusing on Italian city-states in the Renaissance period. You might also like to consider these lectures:-
