Vasari, Borghini, and Papal Portraits
Rick Scorza
In this lecture Rick Scorza, Independent Scholar and Thaw Senior Fellow, the Morgan Drawing Institute, offers a glimpse into the powerful influence of the medieval city of Rome on a unique commission given by Duke Cosimo I de Medici to Vasari in the 1560s. The story of Vasari and Borghini's search for authentic images of Popes reveals the medieval and early Renaissance masterpieces that formed their artistic heritage, much of it now lost. This program is sponsored by the Drawing Institute.
