In 1453 a prodigiously talented young artist Mantegna married into the Bellini family of Venice – renowned for their distinctive innovations in the use of colour and light.

Join deaf lecturer Edward Richards to discover how the creative dialogue between the brother-in-laws Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini shaped the art of the Renaissance and beyond.

This BSL presentation will also be interpreted into spoken English by Melanie Pendrick-Wright.

British Sign Language interpretation
Throughout the year, free talks are given in British Sign Language by Deaf lecturers or in spoken English with BSL interpretation.
