The third of a series of three lectures, given by art historian Giovanni Aloi, culminating in a guided tour of the Italian works of the Art Institute of Chicago. This series of talks maps the fundamental themes and landmark moments of the influential history of Italian landscape painting, from medieval to contemporary art.

This lecture looks at the importance mountains and seas have played in mythology as well as modern and contemporary conceptions of natural spaces, which are inevitably beyond our reach.

 

Free and open to the public.
