Colour Season: A Tale of Two Cities with Paul Hills
Colour in Florence and Venice
Venue: Hay Castle Clore Learning Space
How does Bellini's colour differ from Botticelli's, or Brunelleschi's from that of contemporary Venetian architects? This lecture will explore contrasts and similarities and suggest underlying causes. We will look at the difference between colour in fresco and in mosaic, and note distinct preferences in the use of polychrome marbles in the two cities.
This talk is part of our Castle in Colour Season which begins at the end of February and runs until May. Other Friday talks include "Colour - Space - Light" with Lothar Goetz and "Medieval Colour" with Rosemary Firman
