Lecture | Touching Heaven: Moral Interpretations of Religious Themes in Northern Renaissance Art
Start Date: 2/10/2018Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 2/10/2018End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description
Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos will provide an introduction to the exhibition Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible, examining, in particular, the series of engravings displayed at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Under the creative authority of models such as Raphael, Michelangelo and Titian, sixteenth-century Northern artists developed new strategies in the representation of religious themes, often providing unprecedented interpretations of well-known biblical narratives. By the end of the century, in the complex interplay of Protestant Reformation and Catholic Reform, images produced in the Low Countries – especially prints – had to perform the difficult task of responding simultaneously to the expectations of different audiences.

Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos
Since 2008, Professor De Mambro Santos teaches classes on Renaissance and Early Modern art as well as courses on theories and methodologies of Art History at Willamette University. He received his PhD on Northern Renaissance art and theory from the University of Bologna in 2001. He is the author of numerous articles and monographic studies on Italian and Netherlandish Renaissance and Mannerism, including essays on Karel van Mander, Giorgio Vasari, Leonardo da Vinci and Leon Battista Alberti.

This lecture is offered conjunction with the Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible exhibition taking place at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between February 10 and April 29, 2018.
