The Renaissance elsewhere

Italian Renaissance art during the era of Giotto, da Fabriano, Filarete, and Mantegna is characterized by the use of new painting techniques, the development of perspective, and a desire to depict newly discovered lands and civilizations. Join us as Alexander Nagel explains how these artists and others were able to take viewers on a world voyage previously unimaginable.

Where:   Kane Hall, Room 120 
4069 Spokane Lane
Seattle, WA 98105
