Webinar 1

EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “Ross King recounts Leonardo’s Last Supper”
Presented by best-selling author Ross King

With Additional Commentary by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

The image of The Last Supper is as readily familiar, Kenneth Clark once wrote, as the boot shape of Italy on a map. However, the history of how this famous mural came to be painted, how precisely Leonardo painted it, and who he painted it for, are much less well-known. Ross King will describe how Leonardo received the commission (for whose execution he had little experience and even less inclination) from Lodovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan, and how he went about creating his masterpiece through an experimental new style. While the mural is burdened with many myths – most of which have no basis in fact – the true story of its execution is even more remarkable and interesting.

The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.

Webinar 2

EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “Raphael: The Prince of Painters” 
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

Join me in commemorating the 5th centennial of the death of the great Renaissance painter Raphael Sanzio da Urbino. Since most of us were not able to travel to Rome this year to visit the blockbuster exhibit celebrating the artist’s life, this exclusive webinar will examine his most celebrated works, many of which were included in the show which recently ended.

The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.

Webinar 3

EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “Why the Renaissance Matters – Giotto, Caravaggio, and Vittorio Storaro: Renaissance Narrative Art to Modern Film”
Presented by Hollywood Legend and Art Historian Dr. Peter Weller

With Additional Commentary by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

In early years of art appreciation, while judging Kyoto’s International Film Festival, I asked Oscar-winning cinematographer, Vittorio Storaro, whom he favored as a painter. Storaro inquired if I had seen, what he deemed as the narrative genesis of film in early modern history, Giotto’s fresco cycle in Padua’s Capella Scrovegni. I had not; whereupon Storaro whiffed, “we cannot discuss art. A dialogue on Rembrandt or Max Ernst, ignorant of Giotto’s space, time, emotion of narrative or Caravaggio’s color, drama and tenebroso, would be a pointless.” For without the visual compendium from Giotto through Caravaggio’s 16th century and beyond; we can only assess art and film — be it Matisse, Rothko, Coppola or Kubrick — in modern myopia.
