Kaplan discusses art and minorities

SUNY, Purchase Professor Paul Kaplan gave a lecture last night entitled "Jewish Artist and Black Africans in Renaissance Art." He spoke about the presence and representation of these minorities, citing examples such as the poor treatment of Jews in Venice. He profiled one talented Jewish artist, Moisè dal Castellazzo, and described how he gained special privileges due to the popularity of his works. For more information, see Arts.
