Andrew Carnduff Ritchie Lecture: “The Large Renaissance Print: Visual Culture and Display”

Thursday, 20, 5:30 PM

This lecture will be presented by Michael Bury, Reader Emeritus in History of Art, University of Edinburgh.

Bury has worked on various aspects of Italian painting, sculpture, and architecture, from the fifteenth through the seventeenth century. His lecture coincides with the Yale University Art Gallery’s special exhibition, “Grand Scale: Monumental Prints in the Age of Dürer and Titian.”

“Grand Scale: Monumental Prints in the Age of Dürer and Titian” assembles a diverse group of European prints from the late fifteenth to the early seventeenth century that share one common characteristic: uncommon scale.
