Join Art Historian Elaine Ruffolo for The History of Venice and the Art of Titian. By the opening of the 15th century, Venice had become the leading maritime power in the Mediterranean and possibly the wealthiest city in Europe. Venice’s holdings on the Italian mainland began to turn a profit, and in turn, public patronage of the arts was on the rise. At the same time, the Venetian school of painting led by the great Tiziano Vecelli (Titian) was reaching the height of its power and influence, a position that it maintained until the last years of the 16th century. In a society as conscious of tradition as Venice, the success of artists depended on their ability to evoke and blend with the glorious past.

Roberto Jamora is a Filipino-American Richmond-based artist and educator. He holds an MFA from Purchase College, State University of New York, and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. The Asian Centennial committee chose Jamora to be the inaugural Asian Centennial Distinguished Fine Arts Fellow at William & Mary. During this talk, Jamora will present his vision for artistically expressing the Asian Pacific Middle Eastern experience and history at William & Mary. His recent work includes The Sound of Fate Knocking at the Door 2, which the Muscarelle Museum of Art acquired in honor of the Asian Centennial. The painting is part of a series called An Inventory of Traces. Jamora says that the purpose of the series is to “commit important events in my life to memory via painting. I mine color from memory, photos, interviews, and artifacts from my family.”

This Muscarelle Explorations: The Voice of the Artist lecture is co-sponsored by the Asian Centennial Committee and the Muscarelle Museum of Art.

This series is made possible by our partner, The Williamsburg Landing.
