Conférence : Machtelt Brüggen Israëls, « Renaissance Lives. Piero della Francesca and the Invention of the Artist », Londres, The Warburg Institute, 19 janvier 2023

Piero della Francesca and the Invention of the Artist – Machtelt Brüggen Israëls will be in conversation with Paul Taylor (Warburg Institute) and François Quiviger (Warburg Institute), at a free online lecture hosted by The Warburg Institute on 19 January 2023, between 5.30 and 7pm GMT.

As one of the most innovative and enlightened painters of the early Italian Renaissance, Piero della Francesca brought space, luminosity and unparalleled subtlety to painting. In addition, Piero invented the role of the modern artist by becoming a traveller, a courtier, a geometrician, a patron and much else besides.

In this nuanced account of his life and art, Machtelt Brüggen Israëls reconstructs how Piero came of age. Successfully demystifying the persistent notion of Piero’s art as enigmatic, she reveals the simple and stunning intentions behind his work.

Renaissance Lives is a series of biographies published by Reaktion Books(Opens in new window) as well as a series of conversations discussing the ways in which individuals transmitted or changed the lives of traditions, ideas and images.

FREE VIA ZOOM. PLEASE BOOK IN ADVANCE HERE.
