THIS EVENT IS NOW PAST: YOU CAN WATCH THE RECORDING HERE
Publishing on 25 March, to coincide with International Dante Day and the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death, Martin Kemp's major new study is the first book to consider the impact of Dante’s vision of divine light on visual artists of the Renaissance and Baroque. It combines a close reading of Dante’s poetry with analysis of early optics and is lavishly illustrated with masterworks by Giotto, Fra Angelico, Piero della Francesco, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Bernini and others. It also looks at what the rival media of poetry and painting can do.
The launch will be broadcast via Zoom webinar exclusively for those who have registered. Registrants will be emailed a link to join the talk by Eventbrite (with a reminder sent an hour before the event).
