A collection of 21 rarely shown 15th- and 16th-century objects are featured in the exhibition "The Italian Renaissance City: Selections from Princeton University Collections," on view at the University Art Museum through Sunday, Jan. 11, 2004.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Department of Art and Archaeology , features numerous loans from the University's collections of rare books, maps and manuscripts in the Firestone Library and Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, as well as selections from the museum's extensive 16th-century European holdings.
The exhibition highlights the various aspects of the Italian Renaissance city that fascinated artists and architects, including Giovanni Marcanova, Andrea Palladio and Sebastiano Serlio, as well as topographers, military engineers, theorists and others.
Anna Swartwood, a graduate student in the Department of Art and Archaeology, will give talks at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 12, to accompany the exhibition.
