Audeh Presents

Professor Aida Audeh, art history, presented her paper, Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio: The Tre Corone as Model of Creative Influence and Collaboration, in a panel organized by the Dante Society of America at the 63rd Annual Renaissance Society of America Conference held in Chicago on March 30-April 1, 2017.

Professor Audeh's paper considered the influence of the 19th century reception of the Italian poets on Vincent van Gogh as he conceptualized his utopian artist community in Arles, France known as the "Studio of the South."  Professor Audeh's talk was excerpted from two forthcoming articles on this subject, the research for which in Amsterdam and Arles was supported by a Hamline University Humanities Grant.
