Tradition and Innovation in Florentine Painting: Pontormo's Visitation
Harold M. Williams Auditorium
This is a past event
Bruce Edelstein, professor at NYU Florence and co-curator of Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters, discusses the context of Pontormo's celebrated paintings, especially the Visitation from the parish church of Carmignano and the Getty's Portrait of a Halberdier (1528–30). He looks at how the Italian master drew from medieval sources yet produced works of startling modernity that resonated with artists well into the 20th century.
