Renaissance Art with Jonathan Jones, a Bath Arts Collective Event

26 March @ 3:30 pm 4:30 pm

Renaissance Art with Jonathan Jones

Guardian art critic Jonathan Jones has an unquenchable passion for the Renaissance period and his ‘pearl of a book’ (The Times) is a compelling tale of innovation in a world of sex, piety, revolution and discovery.  From Atlantic voyages to Germanic woods, Italian palazzi to the royal castle of Prague, this was an age when people dared to experiment with the occult and dabble in utopias: to think and create new worlds.

This illustrated talk, based on his bestselling book Earthly Delights: A History of the Renaissance will cover artistic pioneers including Leonardo, Bosch, Bruegel, Titian, Michelangelo and Dürer, setting their lives and works against a period of convulsive change.

Jonathan Jones is art critic for the Guardian and has been a judge for the Turner Prize. His books include The Lost Battles: Leonardo, Michelangelo and the Artistic Duel that Defined the Renaissance; The Loves of the Artists: Art and Passion in the Renaissance; Sensations: The Story of British Art from Hogarth to Banksy; and Artemisia Gentileschi.
