Art History Lecture Series - Art, Science and Philosophy in Raphael’s Frescoes in the Vatican

Masterpieces of Italian Renaissance and Baroque Painting and Architecture

Italian Embassy Cultural Centre in collaboration with Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya are organizing a series of lectures (2 hours each) by Reshma Nayyar on major Renaissance and Baroque artists/artworks. Each lecture will begin with a one-hour presentation of context addressing major artistic trends and artworks of the period. This will be followed by an interactive second hour examining specific artworks. In the interactive portion of the lecture, participants will be guided to apply the knowledge they have already gained in order to critically evaluate for themselves important features of the artworks being discussed

Art, Science and Philosophy in Raphael’s Frescoes in the Vatican
What do the terms “Classicism” and “High Renaissance” mean? Why are the Raphael Rooms (“Stanze di Raffaello”) named after Raphael? How does Raphael’s art relate to that of Leonardo and Michelangelo? Why is his School of Athens considered a masterpiece of the High Renaissance?

Dr. Reshma Nayyar is a specialist in Baroque art, who received a PhD in Art History from Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA, where she has also taught courses in art history and expository writing.
