Mona Lisa’s Smile: Representation of Emotion in Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art Lecture by Rocky Ruggiero

February 15 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join art professor and Italian renaissance expert and television personality, Rocky Ruggiero Ph.D., for a lecture on Leonardo Da Vinci who maintained that “a good painter has two main objects to paint – man and the intention of his soul.” What Leonardo means by the “intention of the soul” is what we would call “emotion”, and the entire history of art has been an attempt to communicate, evoke, provoke, sublimate, capture or simply to represent it. This lecture will explore how emotion was represented in the Renaissance and Baroque periods by examining some of the most iconic works produced by the great artists of the periods such as Giotto, Donatello, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Bernini and Caravaggio.
