War in Renaissance Prints

Olszewski Lecture in Renaissance Art: In the Heat of Battle: Representing War in Renaissance Prints

Speaker: Jessica Maier, Associate Professor of Italian Renaissance Art, Mount Holyoke College

Recital Hall

Military conflict is one of the most commonly depicted subjects in Renaissance prints—which is hardly surprising, given that this was a time of near-constant warfare. Touching on several works in the CMA’s collection, this talk explores some of the myriad and evolving ways that battle was represented in printed imagery in the late 15th and 16th centuries, ranging from allegory to history, propaganda to news.

Free, no reservation required.
