Join author and Professor Michael Cothren in our Looking Through the Canvas webisode series where he will discuss unique perspectives on Giotto's Kiss of Judas. The frescos wealthy banker Enrico Scrovegni commissioned from Tuscan painter Giotto di Bondone in the early years of the fourteenth century are among the most important works of the Western painting tradition. They appear in most introductory courses to demonstrate the movement toward the use of modeled, weighty figures to enact sacred narrative with a humanizing focus that moves this history of painting toward the Renaissance in Italy. For centuries after they were completed, artists journeyed to Padua to study and draw from these murals, which became an inspirational aspect of their training. During a semester in France studying studio-art, my own instructor sent me to Padua to study and draw. But instead of guiding me to the solution of problems in my own painting (her reasoning for sending me there), the days I spent in the Scrovegni chapel fueled within me a curiosity about the objectives and enigmas of visual narrative that converted me to a life in art history.
Join author Henry Sayre in our Looking Through the Canvas webisode series where he will discuss the politics underlying Édouard Manet’s The Battle of the “Kearsarge” and the “Alabama” painted in a matter of weeks after, on Sunday, June 19, the U.S.S. Kearsarge engaged the Confederate sloop Alabama in international waters just off Cherbourg, France in the English Channel and sank her in a battle that lasted some 70 minutes. Manet’s first painting to directly address current events, it encapsulates French attitudes toward the American Civil War. Its centrality to the painter’s own political leanings are perhaps best illustrated by the fact that eight years later, after France had been defeated by Germany and radical Paris had fallen to more conservative French forces, in what itself amounted to a Civil War, it would be Manet’s sole entry to the Salon of 1872.
