Kimbell Art Museum Tour “Italian Renaissance Art Treasures” by Rocky Ruggiero, Ph.D.
After sold-out lectures at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and the MFA in Boston, join Dr. Rocky Ruggiero for a 90 minute in-depth analysis of the great Italian Renaissance art treasures in the Kimbell Art Museum collection.
We shall examine works from the 14th through the 16th centuries by masters such as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Titian, Duccio, Fra Angelico, Mantegna, and Bellini.
Particular emphasis will be given to Caravaggio’s “Cardsharps” which is one of the few paintings in the United States by the great Baroque master; and Michelangelo’s “Torment of Saint Anthony” which is the only easel painting by Michelangelo outside of Europe.
What participants can expect:
- To thoroughly understand the importance of the Italian art in the Kimbell 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
