Sally J. Cornelison, Professor of Art History and Director of the Florence Graduate Program in Italian Renaissance Art, presented the paper “Assumptions and Deductions: Vasari and Marian Imagery at Arezzo’s Pieve” at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America that took place in April.
On April 16 Professor Cornelison gave a talk, “Picturing the Italian Renaissance Woman: Artists, Images, & Patrons,” in which she explored the relationship between women and the visual culture of the Italian Renaissance. The presentation was given for the College of Arts & Sciences Alumni Academy in celebration of the College’s sesquicentennial.
Professor Cornelison was also awarded a Franklin Research Grant from the American Philosophical Society. The funds will support on-site research in Italy for her book projects on the sacred art of Giorgio Vasari.
