Context brings the brightest minds to your living room with perspective-shifting online lectures.
This has been a superb series of fascinating lectures, well researched, produced and presented, as always, by Kate Bolton Porciatti. I have been introduced to many artists, collectors, and writers, some of whom were new to me, and whose work I will now seek out.
This series was outstanding in many ways: It was so interesting, particularly seeing how many Americans loved Florence and the Renaissance. Kate was the reason for this.
Kate does a terrific job of weaving all these American ex-pats together. It's been fascinating. The Anglo-American community in Florence was small. Lots of opportunities for these artists to meet and mingle. Getting an overview of the known and new- to- me artists has been fun.
Very interesting- excellent how many beautiful paintings were integrated into the presentation
Another excellent, informative & fascinating lecture setting in vivid context American writers in Florence; how they formed a tight knit community and used their surroundings, villas and friends as source material. Superbly illustrated and inspiring : my ‘must read’ book list has grown significantly longer!
