FREE WEBINAR | “The Sistine Chapel before Michelangelo”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
Decades before Michelangelo climbed up on the nearly 70 feet of scaffolding to adorn the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, a veritable “All-Star Team” of late 15th-century artists had already decorated its walls. Artists such as Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Perugino, and Signorelli were sent to Rome by Lorenzo “il Magnifico” de’ Medici to pay homage to the original patron and namesake of the chapel – Pope Sixtus IV. Join Dr. Rocky for this free webinar where he will explore the pre-history of the Sistine Chapel and the early Renaissance frescoes that had already transformed the chapel into an extraordinary decorative complex.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
