Disaster to Delight: The Reinvention of Renaissance Rome
Aimee Ng, Department of Drawings and Prints, The Morgan Library & Museum
After the death of Raphael, Rome enjoyed only seven more years of indulgence—artistic and otherwise—before imperial forces sacked the city in 1527. In an illustrated lecture, Aimee Ng, Department of Drawings and Prints, The Morgan Library & Museum,
traces the story of Rome through its works of art, from the disastrous consequences of the Sack to the reestablishment of the city as the unrivaled center of the artistic world by the end of the century. This lecture coincides with the exhibition Rome After Raphael.
