Come and Discover:
The 17th century saw all of Europe at war, societies rocked by upheaval and the questioning of long-held truths.Yet despite the portents of disaster, Rome succeeded in producing some of the most uplifting images in the history of art.
Heavenly visions and ecstatic encounters materialized over altars, on ceilings and in public pageants engulfing both denizens and visitors in representations of hope through beauty.
This lecture looks at the Roman response to fear, loss and suffering in unleashing the genius of Gianlorenzo Bernini, Artemisia Gentileschi, Andrea Pozzo and others to reveal the invisible glory just beyond our mortal gaze.
