Zuleika Murat, ‘I have not seen more precious tombs and burials with greater pomp’: Guariento and the Tomb of Doge Giovanni Dolfin in Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Venice

The splendid tomb of Doge Giovanni Dolfin in the Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo in Venice once consisted of a hanging canopy and tomb by Andrea da San Felice and decorations by the famous painter Guariento.  Dr. Murat proposes a new hypothesis and a visual reconstruction of this important monument in one of Venice’s most significant locations.

All seminars this term are held at 5pm in the Keynes Library at Birkbeck’s School of Arts (Room 114, 43, Gordon Sq., London, WC1H OPD). A break at 5.50pm is followed by discussion and refreshments.
