The Art of Seeing background lecture: Looking back to the Renaissance with Mary Attwood
40 minute downloadable lecture
In Part One of this series of lectures on The Art of Seeing, Mary provides a more theoretical overview to the experiential and practical monthly ZOOM sessions on The Art of Seeing. Each of these background lectures focuses on a broader understanding of works of art from the symbolic, imaginative and perceptual. This first in the series looks back to the Florentine Renaissance and the events that followed which replaced our broader ways of seeing and engaging with works of art with rational analysis – and how we might begin to see anew.
