The Nova Reperta and the Renaissance Representation of Invention and Globalization

Join us for a talk by Lia Markey, Director of the Center for Renaissance Studies, The Newberry Library.

Giovanni Stradano’s Nova Reperta (c. 1588), a renowned print series of twenty engravings, represents nineteen post-classical novelties, as varied as eyeglasses, the cure for syphilis, and the New World. Through an analysis of the prints, Latin captions, and preparatory drawings, this paper examines how the series depicts invention as both global and specifically Florentine to investigate the relationship between innovation and cross-cultural exchange in the late sixteenth century.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the art department.
