EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “The Sistine Chapel of Venice: Tintoretto and the Scuola of San Rocco”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
Decorated entirely with paintings by the great Venetian Renaissance painter Tintoretto, the Scuola Grande of San Rocco is the only still-active scuola – or “confraternity” in Venice. The scuola building houses nearly 50 paintings by Tintoretto, which depict both Old and New Testament subject matter and that were executed over a 23-year period. Epic in both style and scope, the Scuola of San Rocco is a shrine to the dramatic, boldly dynamic and frenetically energetic painting style of the artist known as “Il Furioso,” much the same way that the paintings of the Sistine Chapel celebrate the artistic legacy of Michelangelo.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
