Lecture Series: Saints, Singers, and Soldiers

February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tulane Italian professor Linda Carroll will present Saints, Singers, and Soldiers: Patronage of the Arts in Renaissance Venice. Sixteenth-century Venice faced challenges from European powers looking to conquer its mainland state and the Turkish Port looking to conquer its maritime state. A group of Venetian patricians turned their patronage of the arts to the commissioning of paintings, funerary monuments, plays, and singers as a way of influencing government decisions over how to cope with the challenges. Major art works in the church of the Frari, the plays of Ruzante, and the songs of Antonio Molino will be considered.

Register

The lectures are free for AICC members and students with a valid university or high school ID, and a suggested donation of $10 for non-members.
