Hide and Seek: Rhymes and Riddles Inspired by Bronzino’s Paintings

May 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In this evening’s presentation, Prof. Eisenbichler will read some of the poems composed by Roberto Piumini (in Italian) and Konrad Eisenbichler (in English) to accompany a recent exhibition of the paintings of Agnolo Bronzino (1503-72), the great portrait painter of  Renaissance Florence, held at Palazzo Pitti in Florence. Prof. Eisenbichler will discuss them in  relation not only to the paintings they illustrate, but also the linguistic and cultural difficulties inherent in transposing such poems from one language to the other.
