Lecture Tour of the Italian Art at The MET 5th Avenue – NYC by Rocky Ruggiero, PhD

After sold-out lectures at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, the MFA in Boston and the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth TX, join Rocky for an in-depth analysis of the great Italian Renaissance art treasures in the Metropolitan Museum of Art Fifth Avenue in New York City. We shall examine works dating from the 14th through the 17th centuries by masters such as Botticelli, Caravaggio, Giotto, Tintoretto, Duccio, Fra Angelico and  Fra Lippo Lippi.

Particular emphasis will be given to Caravaggio’s “Musicians“and Duccio’s “Madonna and Child” – two rare examples of works by these artists in the United States.

What guests can expect:

  • To thoroughly understand the importance of the Italian art in the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection
  • To enjoy a “hands on” approach to the works of art
  • To develop an ability to interact in a personal and intimate manner with the works of art discussed
