Women of the Italian Renaissance: who were they?

Sun 15 May 2016 @ 10:00 - 16:45

£85.00

Have you ever seen a ‘desco da parto’ (birth tray)? What is it and what was it used for? And why is goddess Flora so often shown in paintings with a bare breast? For what special occasions were these things commissioned? All these objects are linked to the female sphere of Renaissance women. Through this course you will be questioning and learning about one of the most complex and contradictory chapters of our history.
