When the World Answered:
Florence, Women Artists and the 1966 Flood

In the wake of a 1966 flood that damaged countless works of art, the government of Florence called for donations of artworks to reclaim the city’s place at the forefront of the art world.

Invisible Women:
Forgotten Artists of Florence

This Emmy-winning documentary sheds light on the lives and works of the largely forgotten female painters of the Renaissance, revealing the “hidden half” of one of the world's most beloved art cities.

This presentation is part of lecturer Joan Jacobs' Art in Film series.
