Description

Wesleyan Professor Emeritus John Paoletti explores this famous sculpture afresh, asking how do we know it is David, why is he naked, and how does his nakedness refer to life in Renaissance Florence?

Followed by a conversation with sculptor Aron Demetz

This lecture is part of the Robert H. Smith Renaissance Sculpture Programme.
