Academy Art Museum Presents “Renaissance Artists on the Road — A Sneak Preview of Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Exhibition”

The Academy Art Museum is honored to host a talk by Stephen Campbell, Professor of Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art at Johns Hopkins University, on Thursday, April 23, at 6 p.m. at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, MD.  Professor Campbell will give an insider’s sneak preview of a major exhibition that he is curating at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston (opening in October 2015) on Renaissance artists who left their homes and exported their influence.  The focus of the lecture will be on Venetian painters Carlo Crivelli and Lorenzo Lotto.  Professor Campbell will address the questions – what difference does travel make to the work of an artist, and how do travelling artists influence the places where they roam.

The lecture is part of the Academy Art Museum’s Kittredge-Wilson Speaker Series. Tickets cost $15 for Museum members and $20 for non-members. To register, visit academyartmuseum.org or call 410-822-2787.
