Start: 20th April 2012 at 6:00pm
End: 22nd April 2012 at 2:00pm
The Fresco cycles of the 14th century in Italy by artists such as Giotto, Simone Martini or the Lorenzetti Brothers represent some of the most precious examples of the very early renaissance. Colour, composition and stories delight spectators’ senses as the fresco cycle unfolds around the walls of a chapel, church or palace. There is a wealth of surviving frescoes in the major centres of Assisi, Siena and Florence, but equally fascinating examples are tucked away in lesser-known places such as San Gimignano, Urbino or La Manta. The course presents the opportunity to study the artists and fresco cycles of the 14th century in depth.
