History of Art and Architecture

Christopher Nygren Speaks at University of Massachusetts Amherst

On March 21, Christopher Nygren presented his paper “Salt, Water, and Stone: The Ecology of Art in Renaissance Venice,” at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The paper traces the history of painting on stone in Venice within the ecology of the broader Veneto region.
