Tintoretto and the Scuola Di San Rocco in Venice, Lecturer Sian Walters

The Venetian Scuola  were semi- religious confraternities or guilds. The vast canvasses which cover the walls  and ceiling of this Renaissance building represent  one of the most ambitious artistic projects of the 16th Century and one of the greatest achievements of their creator, Jacopo  Tintoretto. The lecture assesses how these paintings  reflect the techniques and activities of their patrons and considers their influence on subsequent generations of artists including Rubens and Velasquez. 2018 also marks the 500th anniversary of Tintoretto's birth.
