PRESENTATION

Nicolau Chanterene arrived at the great workshop of the Monastery of Santa Maria de Belém (Lisbon) by the end of 1516, or in the beginning of the following year, and remained there throughout 1517, carrying out notable sculptural works, relevant for the introduction of the forms and themes of the Renaissance in Portugal.

Newberry Fellowships

 

The Newberry Library's long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. In addition to the Library's collections, fellows are supported by a collegial interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. An array of scholarly and public programs also contributes to an engaging intellectual environment.

A Muscovite in Italy

I have just posted to my personal web page a "travel account" highlighting some materials and thoughts from my recent trip to Italy, where we visited Milan, Florence, the hill-town of Cortona, and Rome. This makes no pretense at scholarly profundity (and may in fact seem a bit underwhelming....), but I think at least some of the material should interest readers of H-EarlySlavic.  Among other things, there is material on mosaics, on portraits, and on architecture, and some thoughts about the hoary issue of Muscovy's relationship to the Renaissance in the West.
