Patrons & Art in Santo Spirito: Online Talk in English
“Patterns of Patronage” is the title of the Wednesday, April 7 talk in English at at the British Institute Library. 6 pm. The Capponi, Nerli and Nasi Altarpieces in the Basilica di Santo Spirito are the point of departure for Ellie Walker’s exploration of the relationships between the patrons and the artists, and the network of patronage in Renaissance Oltrarno. These outstanding altarpieces by Piero di Cosimo, Filippino Lippi, and the lesser known but intriguing figure of Raffaellino del Garbo, contain interesting visual relationships, which reveal the power dynamics between their patrons, literally, for all to see.
