Workshop - Recalculating Reality: the Artist and the Camera Obscura

On June 11th at 3 pm Museo Galileo, in collaboration with the exhibition “From Fattori of the 20th Century” at Villa Bardini, is organizing a workshop on the relationship between the fascinating natural phenomenon of the camera obscura and artists’ drawings.

The principle of the camera obscura was used by great artists to help them to achieve the amazing reality in their works. In this seminar/workshop, interactive models used by artists like Leonardo, Canaletto, Vermeer, the Impressionists up through the age of photography will be demonstrated to show the tremendous impact on the birth of artistic movements between the 19th and 20th centuries.
