Alpha and Omega, or The Boundary of Our Orient

Monday, March 14, 2016 17:45 - 19:15

Art Historian Professor Alexander Nagel, from the Institute of Fine Arts in New York City, will present a public lecture drawing on his recent research on ideas of Asia and America in Renaissance Europe.

The decades after 1492 brought Asia closer to Europe than it had ever been. The art, cartography, and literature of the period we call the High Renaissance expanded to imagine a new convergence of worlds where East rejoined West and New neighboured Old.
