Talk by Victoria Ehrlich, Visiting Professor, Art Department

“Between Nature and Culture: Visualizing a Mythological Hero in Fifteenth-Century Florence”

THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2019

PACKARD ROOM 23, 3:30 PM

Professor Ehrlich will discuss how fifteenth-century Florentine artists visualized the realm of virtue by depicting heroes doing battle with monsters. She believes that these figures do not represent the stark contrast between the brutish and the superhumanly virtuous, described by Aristotle, but actually mirrored one another in significant ways. She will point out the congruencies between the heroic and the monstrous as represented in the visual culture of Quattrocento Florence. This approach brings into relief contemporary ideas of virtue as reflected in the ambiguous status of monsters and heroes, while foregrounding the unstable boundary that separated nature from culture in fifteenth-century thought.

AH 200 – Topics in Art History: Turn of the Century Art of London, Paris & Vienna

Artistic and related intellectual, social and cultural developments in three important capitals of Europe circa 1880-1910. We will investigate the impact on art of this age of uncertainty and transition from traditional to modernist points of view, following themes of degeneration and decadence, anxiety and the inner life, and the preoccupation with sexuality, especially androgyny and the fatal woman. The class will examine a number of artists in depth, including Toulouse-Lautrec and Redon in Paris; Klimt and Schiele in Vienna; Burne-Jones and Beardsley in London. We will consider their work in relation to Freud, Schopenhauer, and Oscar Wilde, among others, as well as their repudiation of Victorian morals.
