簡介: 每當談到意大利文藝復興的時候,人們總是會用“人的發現”、“對自然和美的發現”以及“把人和人性從宗教的束縛中解放出來”等這類耳熟能詳的語句來形容這個時代。這類詞語可以說是對意大利文藝復興運動實質的高度概括。但正因其“高度概括”的特性,它也常常因為理論的抽象而失去了對一般大眾的吸引力。有鑒于此,此次講座特意選取了文藝復興時期一幅著名的藝術作品,即洛倫佐·吉貝爾蒂的青銅門,又稱“天堂之門”作為切入點,希望以點帶面,通過講解天堂之門的藝術細節,再現意大利文藝復興時期佛羅倫薩的精美藝術及其精神內涵。具體到講座內容方面,講座者將會從“天堂之門”的雕刻歷史、雕刻作品的歷史內涵、藝術家的加工創造以及天堂之門在佛羅倫薩的歷史遭遇等多個角度,再現文藝復興時期的這幅藝術精品。

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.
