The Patron's Turn: Giotto, Enrico Scrovegni, and the Arena Chapel in Padua
Location: Palamountain Hall: Davis Auditorium
Time: 5:30 PM
Speaker: Anne Derbes, Professor of Art History, Hood College; and Mark Sandona, Professor of English, Hood College
Why did Enrico Scrovegni construct the Arena Chapel and commission its elaborate fresco program? Recent scholarly assessments see the nexus between the patron and his civic context as untroubled. We will make the case that the program strikes a delicate balance between ostentation and penitence. Both with documentary and visual evidence, we argue that the patron's efforts reflect more than civic magnanimity; he also seeks to represent himself as reintegrated into the Christian community."
