The (Un)Familiar: Rethinking the Italian Renaissance Nude with Jill Burke

Looking at Renaissance art through the eyes of a 15th century Italian

In The Italian Renaissance Nude (Yale University Press, 2018), Dr. Jill Burke, Senior Lecturer in the History of Art at the University of Edinburgh, constructs a novel interpretation of the Renaissance nude by examining how nakedness, both in art and everyday life, was perceived at the time. In conversation with Ilgin Nas, a senior at Harvard College, she provides insight into the challenges she met while researching and composing her new book, as well as shares larger observations about the Renaissance, the nude, and the existing scholarship on these topics.
