Visits & Study Days STUDY DAY 21 OCTOBER  2019 DAN EVANS:    THE LAYERS OF  ROME – CLASSICAL , RENAISSANCE, BAROQUE  Lecture 1. Classical Rome and its Legacy. The Pantheon, Colosseum and Basilica of Maxentius. We shall look at these three inspirational buildings each with a different form and function – these were the edifices that could be seen in ruin ever since the Sack of Rome in the 5th Century AD, and provide the basis for understanding Renaissance painting and sculpture. Lecture 2. The Rise of the Renaissance. Frescoes by Fillipino Lippi in the Carafa Chapel, Michelangelo's St Peter's Pieta and Raphael's Stanze della Segnatura (inc. School of Athens) allow us to trace the development of theology, philosophy and aesthetics with the emergence of the High Renaissance. We shall look at bright, intelligent frescoes and a sculpture of breath-taking brilliance. Lecture 3. Drama of the Baroque. Caravaggio's painting in the Contarelli Chapel in San Luigi dei Francesi, Bernini’s San Andrea al Quirinale and Bernini's Ecstasy of San Theresa, are three of the most celebrated Baroque embellishments in Rome. A gritty series of paintings by a notorious sinner, a scandalous religious sculpture group and interactive architecture by the Baroque’s mastermind will allow us to understand the context and purpose of the art and architecture of seventeenth century Rome.
