Il Perugino Lecture

What an amazing eveningof art history – specifically that of Pietro Perugino, il Perugino – presented by Rebecca Albiani, art historian and board member of SPSCA, at Horizon House in Seattle on May 30, 2023. Pietro Perugino (c. 1446/1452 – 1523), born Pietro Vannucci, was an Italian Renaissance painter of the Umbrian school, who developed some of the qualities that found classic expression in the High Renaissance. Raphael was his most famous pupil. This lecture, along with a stunning exhibit of his work at Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria Perugia, celebrate the 500th anniversary of the passing of Il Perugino. The exhibit in Perugia continues until June 11, 2023.

Rebecca’s passion for - and expertise in – art history, and her lively, emotive presentation style delivered a fantastic lecture to our members and Horizon House residents in attendance.
