The Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library (Chicago) will host a virtual conversation with Jonathan Tavares (The Art Institute of Chicago) and Suzanne Karr Schmidt (Newberry Library) on The Art of Renaissance Warfare, to be held on Zoom.
Thursday 17 September 2020
12 to 1 pm
“The development of gunpowder, stirrups, and new techniques for polishing armor changed the face of war in sixteenth-century Europe. In this virtual conversation, Jonathan Tavares of the Art Institute of Chicago and Suzanne Karr Schmidt of the Newberry will discuss the importance of Renaissance-era innovations in military technology by focusing on a model cannon, pair of stirrups, and collection of armor on view in the Renaissance Invention exhibition as loans from the Art Institute.”
