We are delighted to welcome Renaissance expert Dr Jeannie Labno who will deliver two lectures starting with Ten Masterpieces of the early Renaissance and followed later in the year with Ten Masterpieces of the Late Renaissance. Together, these two lectures will cover almost 300 years, during which time some of the greatest masterpieces in the history of art were created by some of the greatest artist of all time.

Through trial and error, the early masters rediscovered the technique of perspective and through experimentation with pigments achieved results that revolutionised art in the Early Renaissance. The exploration of the Early Renaissance will begin with Giotto and end with Ghirlandaio. Using Jeannie’s personal selection of ten paintings the focus will be on the particular techniques that these masters used to create innovative effects. An analysis of these paintings will demonstrate how and why we react to them as we do. Viewers are being manipulated – both visually and emotionally – by the skills of the artists.

Dr Jeannie Labno is an independent art historian specialising in the art and culture of the Italian Renaissance with particular interest on its impact in Central and Eastern Europe. A subject on which she has published widely. As well as art history, Jeannie taught for many years on the art and architecture of Ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt.
