The Grand Tour in Venice
Open Arts Archive: Michelangelo Buonarroti (attr’d), The Holy Family with Saint John the Baptist
This project from the Open University explores a series of vivid objects from ancient times to the present, showing how each is not merely a seductive or beautiful artwork or artefact, but can also reveal fascinating histories and connections. In short films on selected objects, members of the department showcase their innovative research to the public. The objects explored include paintings, sculpture, prints, ceramics, architecture and design, film and video, and installation and performance art. These films shed light on some of the unsolved mysteries of material objects, exploring what is left out of standard art history textbooks and they teach viewers how to look closely—a critical tool for Art History.
We are pleased to announce that the October 2018 volume of COLNAGHI STUDIES JOURNAL is now online. The current issue is largely dedicated to the renowned scholar of Venetian art, Jennifer Fletcher, in celebration of her outstanding contribution to the discipline of Art History on the occasion of her eightieth birthday.
