Talk: The Mirror of Painting in Renaissance Art
  • Theatre 2, Roland Levinksy Building, Plymouth University

Save event

Dr Warwick, Reader in History of Art for Edinburgh College of Art at the University of Edinburgh, explores the key pictorial development of Renaissance art as an understanding of painting as a mirror reflection of the visible world. The motif of the mirror within the painting would become a visual metaphor of the art and skill of painting, from Van Eyck’s Arnolfini portrait to Velazquez’s Rokeby Venus, and beyond.

Time: 19:00
Venue: Theatre 2, Roland Levinksy Building, Plymouth University
