April Oettinger is Professor of Art History, Chair of the Visual & Material Culture Program, and Director of the recently inaugurated Sweren Wogan Institute for the Study of the Book at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. A co-author of Green Worlds in Early Modern Italy: Art and the Verdant Earth, this presentation explores the relationship between humans and nature in Renaissance Italy. Through the art of Botticelli, Titian, and their peers, the gardenscapes of Tivoli, and the imagined landscapes of 16th-century dream literature, we will take a close look at the ways in which painters and poets envisioned the lyrical, sometimes haunting, character of the green world.
