Description


With the arrival of the plague in 1348, artistic production in Italy would never be the same. Through the study of Italian painters and writers of the Trecento we will compare pre- and post-plague aesthetics, that is how artists dealt with the tremendous loss o life and spiritual doubt left in the wake of one of the greatest disasters the European continent has ever witnessed.

Location
