Italian American Experience Lecture Series: Leading Ladies of the Renaissance

Discover the lives and legacies of Italy's "Renaissance women" and those of several unheralded women who inspired some of the greatest artwork of all time. This is an uplifting and illuminating program that examines the evolution of the perceptions of women from Roman and Medieval times through the Renaissance, the inflection point when our concept of today’s modern woman began to take shape. We will discuss women such as Isabella d'Este, Vittoria Colonna, and Artemisia Gentileschi, whose lives and accomplishments continue to inspire us today, while we gain fresh perspectives on some of the Renaissance’s most beloved artists and paintings.
