Save the Date: "Between Heaven and Hell: Botticelli’s Lost Drawings and the Discovery of the Renaissance"

Prof. Joseph Luzzi's talk will narrate the story of how one hundred illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy by the legendary Florentine artist Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) went missing for over four hundred years, and how their dramatic discovery by an obscure German art historian named Walter Lippmann in 1882 contributed to the creation of what we now call “the Renaissance.”

The presentation will take place on Monday, October 1, 2018 at 5:00pm  NCH 236.

Italian Guest: Joseph Luzzi, Professor of Comparative Literature at Bard College
