A new video of “Space in Medieval and Modern Painting: A dialogue between Barbara Rose and Lynn Gamwell”

Today’s post features a recently uploaded video of the VCS-sponsored lecture Space in Medieval and Modern Painting: A dialogue between Barbara Rose and Lynn Gamwell, which took place at SVA on April 18th. Here’s our description of the event, followed by screenshots of three of the images from Barbara Rose’s slide presentation:

Barbara Rose, art historian and critic, will dialogue with Lynn Gamwell, SVA art history faculty, about the medieval Beatus manuscripts, in which she has discerned a peculiar concept of space that reappears in modern art. This topic resonates with Lynn’s new book, Mathematics and Art: A Cultural History, in which she says that culture’s understanding of ultimate reality relates directly to how people conceive the geometry of space and the arithmetic of time.
