About

In the reliefs of Donatello (1386-1466) light and form are created by lines scored into the surface. An art historian with a special sensitivity to drawing, Paul Hills will be looking at the way several of the greatest Renaissance Sculptors used line, whether in terracotta, bronze, or stone. Paul Hills is Professor of Renaissance Art at the Courtauld Institute. Best known for his two remarkable books published by Yale - The Light of Early Italian Painting (1987) and Venetian Colour (1999) - he is currently researching the theme of Veils in art. In 1981 he curated the Tates retrospective of the painter/poet David Jones .
