La Serenissima Repubblica

Venetian Renaissance Series

The first course in the series of History of Art classes will focus on the Venetian Renaissance.

In this class we we will be looking at Venice's self-representation and self fashioning by re-visiting fictions and half truths that The Republic invented for itself.  This tactic was engaged to create an image of an independent republic-- the legitimate heir to the Roman Empire. 

These Venetian displays of art are represented visually and symbolize the personified Venetia
More specifically, we will try to understand what it means to be Venetian, or venezianità, and the historical echo of Venetian art, literature and film will be explored.

Note: You can sign up for one class or both. 

Instructor:  Cristina Vremes has a background in History of Art and Philosophy.  She holds a BA from University College London (UCL) and an MPhil from the University of Cambridge.  She has held a number of professional positions including the Saatchi Gallery and the Jeu de Paume Gallery.  She is an independent art writer with an emphasis on Renaissance Art, 17th century Dutch painting and Contemporary Art.
