Michaelangelo's David

John Paoletti, Kenan Professor of the Humanities, Emeritus and Professor of Art History, Emeritus at Wesleyan University, will present the lecture “Naked Men in the Piazza: Michaelangelo’s David.” Paoletti is an internationally-prominent scholar in art history with much of his work focused on the Italian Renaissance. During his time at Wesleyan University, Paoletti has set standards for teaching and scholarly excellence. He also produced a series of distinguished exhibitions of 20th century art and accompanying catalogues, making him one of the few scholars active today who publish in two different periods of art history.
