Lecture: STEPHANIE PORRAS, "MAERTEN DE VOS"
Maerten de Vos was a sixteenth-century Flemish artist who worked in Italy, a double convert (to Lutheranism before returning to Catholicism), and an export artist whose work could be found across europe, South-East Asia, and the Americas by the time of his death. As a figure "in-between" he is largely absent from Renaissance art history. This lecture questions his lacuna and de Vos's place within the so-called global Renaissance.
