Drop in to the Glucksman on Tuesday or Sunday at 1.30pm to view a short and insightful film about a major artist. For the month of June the focus is on the Italian Renaissance Masters and next up is an insightful short documentary on Pisanello: Painter to the Renaissance Court.

Pisanello (1395-1455) was one of the most celebrated artists of the Early Renaissance in Italy. He worked in the most sophisticated courts in the country and was employed by, among others, the Este in Ferrara and the Gonzaga in Mantua. Starting in Verona where Pisanello grew up and ending in Rome where he is thought to have died, this screening traces Pisanello’s career exploring what life was like in the 15th century courts in which he worked and showing how the subject matter and style of his work reflects the chivalric values held dear by his courtly patrons. The screening looks in detail at Pisanello’s rare surviving works – four undisputed panel paintings, portrait medals of the most influential people of the time and the exquisite drawings of animals, many studied from life, for which he was famed in his lifetime. It also includes exclusive footage of his fresco of Saint George in the church of Sant’Anastasia in Verona.

Running time 30 minutes
