The exhibition "Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe" will be held at The Walters Art Museum, Baltimore (USA), October 14, 2012–January 21, 2013
This groundbreaking exhibition explores the wealth of European art to reveal the little known presence of Africans and their descendants in Renaissance society and the many roles—saints, slaves, aristocrats, farmers, artists and diplomats—they played there.
Featuring the period from late 1400s to the early 1600s and artists from Gerard David to Peter Paul Rubens, the portraits at the core of this show provide a window on an unsuspected facet of a society deeply impacted by the expanding worldview of the Age of Exploration. The show is organized by the Walters; it will then travel to the Princeton University Art Museum February 16–June 9, 2013.
