简介: 每当谈到意大利文艺复兴的时候,人们总是会用“人的发现”、“对自然和美的发现”以及“把人和人性从宗教的束缚中解放出来”等这类耳熟能详的语句来形容这个时代。这类词语可以说是对意大利文艺复兴运动实质的高度概括。但正因其“高度概括”的特性,它也常常因为理论的抽象而失去了对一般大众的吸引力。有鉴于此,此次讲座特意选取了文艺复兴时期一幅著名的艺术作品,即洛伦佐·吉贝尔蒂的青铜门,又称“天堂之门”作为切入点,希望以点带面,通过讲解天堂之门的艺术细节,再现意大利文艺复兴时期佛罗伦萨的精美艺术及其精神内涵。具体到讲座内容方面,讲座者将会从“天堂之门”的雕刻历史、雕刻作品的历史内涵、艺术家的加工创造以及天堂之门在佛罗伦萨的历史遭遇等多个角度,再现文艺复兴时期的这幅艺术精品。

Brief introduction: Whenever it comes to the Italian Renaissance, people always use familiar statements, such as “human discovery,” “discovery of nature and beauty,” and “liberate man and human nature from the bondage of religion.” Such words can be said to be highly generalized of the essence of the Italian Renaissance movement. However, precisely because of its “highly generalized” nature, it also often loses its appeal to the general public because of its abstract theory. In view of this, the lecture specially selected a famous work of art, namely Lorenzo Ghiberti’s bronze door (Gates of Paradise), as the breakthrough point. The lecture hopes to reproduce the Italian Renaissance of Florence’s exquisite art and its spiritual connotation by explaining the details of the art of the Gates of Paradise. In terms of the content of the lecture, the lecturers will include the carving history of the “Gates of Paradise,” the historical connotation of the carving works, the processing and creation of the artists, and the historical experience of the Gates of Paradise in Florence.
