Special Interest Days Wednesday 9th November 2022 Home is where the Art is: The Renaissance Palace Interiors James Lindow This lecture demonstrates the distinct contribution the urban palaces of Renaissance Italy made towards the development of the visual arts. Significantly many of the paintings, sculptures and decorative objects from this period were originally intended for the domestic interior. While a number of the great palace facades survive largely intact, their interiors have been lost or remain at best greatly altered, since the fifteenth century. Examining diverse visual and written sources, together with surviving objects, the opulence of the Renaissance palace interior is vividly recreated using the speaker’s extensive research from his scholarly book, The Renaissance Palace in Florence: Magnificence and Splendour in Fifteenth-Century Italy. Booking form nearer the date.
