Online Talk: German Renaissance Sculpture
May 4 @ 20:30 - 21:45 UTC+2
For about 50 years at the end of the 15th and beginning of the 16th centuries there was a great flowering of German carved wooden altarpieces and individual figures. Completely out of kilter with the developments in Italy of the High Renaissance, this episode in art history is not especially well known, but it is spectacular, with many individual virtuosic sculptors creating astonishing works.
My PhD was on this sculpture, and you may have heard me talk about it before; but we will explore something of the range of styles, from the most famous such as Riemenschneider and Stoss to the less well known and anonymous sculptors. A real feast for the eyes.
The talk is on Zoom and lasts about an hour, plus time for questions.
Lecturer is Dr Victoria Mier4
