Master and Servant: Apprenticeship and Love in Renaissance-Baroque Art | A Live, Illustrated Zoom Lecture by Eric Huang
It was the tradition in Renaissance Italy for master painters to cultivate apprentices who trained and served under them in more ways than one. With links to pederasty in Ancient Greece, these male-male relationships were both professional and romantic, powerful driving forces behind some of the greatest masterpieces and movements of art.
This talk explores the relationship between master and servant through the artworks themselves in the context of turbulent changes within the power structure of the Catholic Church in Rome.
