Margins of early Renaissance painting

Research Seminar mit Christopher S. Wood


As if revisiting the religion’s primordial decision in favor of an exoteric, rather than esoteric, identity, the Italian painters of the fourteenth century populated Christian subjects and scenes with semi-outsiders: watchers and doubters, anachronistic visitants, sponsors clerical and lay.  Pressure on narrative from the outside tested the integrity of the artwork.
