Join Dr Lucia Tantardini (University of Cambridge) when she delivers a lecture on Italian Drawings from the Robert Landolt Collection.
Drawing, both as act and art, is with good reason referred to as the foundation of art and the most intimate form of artistic creation and expression. This talk explores the unfolding of the art of drawing in Renaissance Italy through examination of Robert Landolt’s collection of old master drawings.
Dr Lucia Tantardini Ph.D. is a Lecturer in the Department of History of Art at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Clare Hall. She specialises in the art of the Italian Renaissance, particularly the interrelation between drawing theory and drawing practices. At Cambridge she teaches the course Drawing in Renaissance and Early Modern Italy c.1450–1600, currently the only academic course in the world entirely devoted to the art of drawing.
