FREE WEBINAR | “Reverence and Rivalry: Religious Art and Architecture in Siena”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
In the first half of the 14th century, the city of Siena was Florence’s main political, economic and artistic rival. Artists such as Duccio, Simone Martini and Ambrogio Lorenzetti were members of one of Europe’s most important school of painting.
This webinar will examine the religious art and architecture in Siena in order to understand the city’s unique beauty and rivalry with Florence. We shall discuss the striking Gothic cathedral of Siena, and examine the various artistic works which adorned it.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
