“Mona Lisa’s Smile: Representation of Emotion in Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

Leonardo Da Vinci maintained that “A good painter has two main objects to paint – man and the intention of his soul.” What Leonardo means by the “intention of the soul” is what we would call “emotion”, and the entire history of art has been an attempt to communicate, evoke, provoke, sublimate, capture or simply to represent it. This lecture explores how affective states were represented in the Renaissance and Baroque periods by examining some of the most iconic works produced by the great artists of the periods such as Giotto, Donatello, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Bernini and Caravaggio.
