Court Networks, Luxury Arts, and Traveling Artists in Northern Italy, 1430–1490


Museum Lecture Hall

Stephen Campbell, professor of art history at Johns Hopkins University, explores how the circulation of artists and works of art in the Italian Peninsula complicates traditional and current notions of early Renaissance art centered on Florence and Venice, and the taxonomies of regional style. Campbell suggests a counter-geography incorporating cities such as Padua, Camerino, and Naples. Complements the exhibition Renaissance Splendors of the Northern Italian Courts.
