EDWARD J. OLSZEWSKI LECTURE IN RENAISSANCE ART
Presented by the Case Western Reserve University Department of Art History and Art, the Olszewski Lecture brings internationally renowned experts whose research focuses on Renaissance art to Cleveland.
Coinciding with the unprecedented exhibition, Michelangelo: Mind of the Master, the lecture will propose that the artist evoked a Eucharistic association at the Laurentian Library by designing a “cathedral of learning,” yet expressed his own spiritual beliefs by forging a somaesthetic bond between readers and God.
Speaker: Daniel Savoy is an Associate Professor of Art History and Digital Media Arts at Manhattan College.
Touching on several works in the CMA’s collection, this talk explores some of the myriad and evolving ways that battle was represented in printed imagery in the late 15th and 16th centuries, ranging from allegory to history, propaganda to news.
Patricia Fortini Brown, Professor Emerita of Art History, Princeton University, will deliver the inaugural Edward J. Olszewski lecture.
