African presence in Renaissance Europe

Portrait of Maria Salviati de' Medici with Giulia de' Medici

Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe is at the Walters Art Museum through January 21, 2013.

Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe invites visitors to explore the roles of Africans and their descendents in Renaissance Europe as revealed in compelling paintings, drawings, sculpture and printed books of the period. Vivid portraits from life both encourage face-to-face encounters with the individuals themselves and pose questions about the challenges of color, class, and stereotypes that this new diversity brought to Europe. Despite the importance of the questions posed for audiences today, this is the first time they have been addressed in a major exhibition.
