Sunday Lecture – Imaging the Merchant Princes of the Renaissance with Mike Hope
This lecture will look at and assess the rise of and demands for lifelike portraiture amongst the growing wealthy elites of Northern Europe. In turn the employment of new materials and paints would be enthusiastically embraced by Northern European artists from the early Flemish masters such as Rogier van der Weyden and Jan van Eyck to the Holbein Dynasty. The new elite sought to be immortalised in paint and these pictures reflect a rapidly changing political and economic scene across Western Europe.
