Class Number #1 In This Series
Thursday May 3, 2018 — What’s Queer About the Renaissance?
A lot! After an explanatory discussion of the ingenious artistic invention of persecutive, we’ll be discussing the controversial same gender loving lives of Leonardo DaVinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti, and other painters and sculptors of the time. We’ll also view the terrific paintings of Artemisia Gentileschi, the most famous woman Renaissance painter, and consider the monumental obstacles she had to endure and the extraordinary images she produced, all from a Queer perspective.
