“The Wake of Desiderio: His Impact on Sculpture of the Late Quattrocento”
The second IAS/Kress Lecture in Italy took place in Florence on June 8, 2011. Dr. Alison Luchs, Curator of Early European Sculpture at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., spoke at the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, and a visit to the Palazzo dell’Arte dei Beccai followed the lecture and reception. Thanks are due to Gail Solberg, who served as the on-the-ground coordinator for the event. Segretario Generale Domenico Zangheri and Dr. Silvia La Rossa facilitated the use of the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno and the Palazzo dell’Arte dei Beccai.
