Art History & the Humanities
Presented by the Case Western Reserve University Department of Art History and Art, the Buchanan Lecture brings internationally renowned experts whose research focuses on art history and museums to Cleveland.
Anne D. Hedeman considers how the collection of 100 tales and their illustrations in Giovanni Boccaccio’s Decameron were adapted and developed once they were brought from Italy to France, where Les cents Nouvelles—as the translation was called—was popular among the nobility rather than the mercantile class.
The lecture aims to discuss how the Byzantines related, conceptually and with their bodies, to textiles and focuses on the latter category of soft furnishings with a particular attention to ideas that draw on the material properties of fabric.
Speaker: Gudrun Bühl, PhD Museum Director and Curator, Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection
