Faculty Author Series: Maria DePrano

February 6, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Professor Maria DePrano will discuss her book "Art Patronage, Family, and Gender in Renaissance Florence: The Tornabuoni," which presents a comprehensive picture of how one Florentine family commissioned art to gain recognition in their society, revere God, honor family members -- especially women -- and memorialize deceased loved ones.

This book examines the multi-media art patronage of three generations of the Tornabuoni family, who commissioned works from innovative artists such as Sandro Botticelli and Rosso Fiorentino.
