About the Event
One of the greatest painters of his day, Giovanni Bellini was famous in Renaissance Venice for his lifelike portraits, beautiful Madonnas, and imposing altarpieces. Yet, today Bellini is lesser-known for being a great storyteller. His characters lived in bucolic landscapes, whether they were holy hermit saints or cold-blooded murderers. They may look passionless, but their stories are full of emotions. Was this contrast an aesthetic choice, or can we find some moral meaning in it? Join Italian native Dr Carlo Corsato for a virtual walk in Bellini's St Francis in Desert and the Assassination of St Peter Martyr, and discover how the artist painted his stories of hope and spiritual redemption.
