Paul Hills Lecture

Fra Filippo Lippi, Adoration of the Child with Saints, (detail) 1463

Professor Paul Hills of the Courtauld Institute, will be giving an interesting lecture in Sydney, Australia on May 13th entitled ‘Clothing the Word: Filippo Lippi, Donatello and Bellini’. It will examine ” the ways in which the Word made Flesh (i.e. the body of Christ) and the Word as Text (i.e. bible or sacred book) are wraped or clothed. It explores wrapping, veiling and unveiling as reality and metaphore in fifteenth-century Italian painting and sculpture.” Further details about the lecture are available on the website of the Power Institute and Sydney Ideasat the University of Sydney.
