Material Splendor in Renaissance Venice

Thu October 26, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Part of the Gardiner Signature Lecture Series
The Helen E. Gardiner Memorial Lecture

At the crossroads of Europe and the Levant, Renaissance Venice was a centre of trade and a repository of goods from all over the world. This lecture will explore the place of ceramics among the luxuries found in the palaces of the nobility and wealthy citizens, including glass, metalwork, and textiles.
