Venetian Art of the Renaissance - Form and Function Siân Walters Monday 12 March 2018

The 16th century was the high point of Venetian art, when artists such as Bellini, Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese were working in the Venetian republic. Siân explores the revolutions in technique pioneered by Venetian artists, and the function of art as a means of reflecting Venice’s political harmony.

Siân Walters studied at Cambridge University. She is a lecturer at the National Gallery and Surrey University, specialising in 15th and 16th century Italian painting, Spanish art & architecture, and the relationship between dance and art. Has lived in France and Italy, where she worked at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice.
