The Hand at Work in Italian Renaissance Art
December 11, 2010
Daniel Zolli, PhD Candidate, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University
Focusing on selected Italian works from about 1300–1600, this talk will chart some of the complex meanings of “the hand” in Renaissance art, whether at work (as the instrument of an artist’s style) or depicted in the work (as a clue to narrative or symbolic meaning). The talk will also explore the Harvard Art Museums’ rich history of connoisseurship, the method used to identify an individual artist’s hand.
Free with the price of admission. Open to the public.
Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
Gallery talks are informal and include discussion.
