The paragone- the notion of competition and rivalry among the arts- was a major topic of debate in the Renaissance. Painters and sculptors vied for superiority, and modern artists and poets sought to challenge their ancient predecessors. Together we will look for visual traces of this debate in works of art made between 1400 and 1600. This gallery talk is led by graduate student gallery talk lecturer Caitlin Henningsen.
