Who makes discoveries and why? How are Renaissance discoveries used, and how might this change the way we view both this enigmatic period and the great works that now form the canon of art history? Focusing on objects in the V&A collection to shed light on a wider phenomenon, curators and art historians will tease out both new discoveries and old in lectures and gallery visits.
