Michelangelo and the Poetry of Vision in Italian Renaissance Art

Thursday, April 8th, 1999
Paul Barolksy
7:30 pm

Room 114, David Kinley Hall 1407 West Gregory Drive Urbana

Event Description

Deftly interweaving poetry, theology, philosophy, and art, Paul Barolsky explores issues of poetic imagination, artistic inventiveness, and powers of pictorial expression. Using Michelangelo's Creation scenes in the Sistine Chapel, Barolsky's subtle analysis of such visionary art deepens our understanding not only of the Sistine frescoes but encourages further reflections on a celebrated monument of the Renaissance era.
