michelangelo's 'dream' in Context

Saturday 6 March 2010

11am - 4 pm

This study day accompanies The Courtauld Gallery's exhibition 'Michelangelo's Dream' and is intended to benefit anyone with an interest in Michelangelo, the graphic arts and Renaissance culture more widely.  It will give added context and interpretation to the exhibition’s themes. Our speakers, all specialists in their field, will illuminate the making and meaning of the ‘Dream’, set it in the context of contemporary artistic practice, and explore aspects of Renaissance art theory, philosophy and poetry.

Speakers are the exhibition curator and The Courtauld Gallery's curator of drawings, Dr Stephanie Buck, the Renaissance drawing specialist  and Birkbeck College lecturer Caroline Brooke and the scholar of Renaissance literature Professor Peter Hainsworth, Emeritus Professor of Italian at Oxford University.
