Talk: Finding Botticelli: Rachel McGarry
Tickets available one month in advance.
Sandro Botticelli was one of the most influential artists of the Florentine Renaissance, but much about his life is unknown. This talk will try to separate myth from fact to illuminate Botticelli’s life and the celebrated works he created 550 years ago.
Rachel McGarry is the Elizabeth MacMillan Chair of European Art, Curator of European Paintings and Works on Paper, at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and co-curator of the exhibition “Botticelli and Renaissance Florence: Masterworks from the Uffizi.”
Botticelli and Renaissance Florence: Masterworks from the Uffizi is on view at Mia October 16, 2022 – January 8, 2023 in Target Gallery.
