Dr. Louis A. Waldman, associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin, is a specialist in the painting and sculpture of 15th- and 16th-century Tuscany. He has a bachelor's degree in art history from Hunter College, a master's in modern and contemporary Art from the City University of New York Graduate Center and a master's and doctorate in Renaissance art from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. His talk is titled “Renaissance Cassoni: From Storage to Storybook.” The homes of Renaissance Italians had no closets; their precious articles of clothing were kept in chests now known as cassoni. In the 15th century, these chests were decorated with a vast range of imagery, often by important painters, whose stories tell us a great deal about the interests and values of their owners. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Life, Love and Marriage Chests in Renaissance Italy.”
