Virtual Art Lecture with Thomas Germano - Michelangelo and Raphael in the Service of Pope Julius II

In recognition of Italian Cultural Heritage Month, join Professor Thomas Germano for a lecture on two great masters of the Renaissance, Michelangelo and Raphael, and their service to Pope Julius II.  Michelangelo thought he would be designing a tomb for Pope Julius before being persuaded to paint the Sistine Chapel. Raphael was commissioned to paint the private apartments for Julius in one of the busiest remodeling periods the Vatican ever saw. Professor Thomas Germano will present a visual art lecture centered on the simultaneous works produced by the two Renaissance titans for Pope Julius II, circa 1503-1513.

Please note this is a virtual only event available on Zoom.
