The talk will look at the many objects (including paintings, sculptures, furniture, jewelry, clothing, and household items) associated with family life in Renaissance Italy. Through an analysis of key life cycle events - marriage, childbirth, and death - and their related objects, we can better understand how people lived, and what they lived with, during this period.

We invite you to join the conversation via the following options:

  • In person in the Diffley Board Room, on the first floor of Bellarmine Hall
  • Streaming via thequicklive.com

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Out of the Kress Vaults: Women in Sacred Renaissance Painting and part of the Edwin L. Weisl, Jr. Lectureships in Art History, funded by the Robert Lehman Foundation.

About Out of the Kress Vaults: The exhibition explores representations of femininity and virtue in Italian Renaissance paintings of the Virgin Mary, female saints, and nuns. This exhibition is the first in the museum’s history to be co-curated with Fairfield University students. Taking inspiration from two paintings of the Madonna and Child in the museum’s own Samuel H. Kress Collection, students in Dr. Michelle DiMarzo’s art history seminar developed the exhibition by examining Kress collections at other institutions, with an emphasis on works typically held in storage.
