ADA – Visualizing Evil: Moral Monstrosity in Medieval and Renaissance Art will be the topic at East Central University’s Third Annual Lockmiller Lecture in Art History on Tuesday, April 8, at 4 p.m. in the Estep Center of the Bill S. Cole University Center.
Dr. Anne Derbes, professor emeritus of art history at Hood College (Md.), will be making the presentation.
Derbes has written three books: The Usurer’s Heart, Enrico Scrovegni, and the Arena Chapel in Padua (with Mark Sandona); Cambridge Companion to Giotto (with Sandona) and Picturing the Passion in Late Medieval Italy: Narrative Painting, Franciscan Ideologies, and the Levant.
She currently is working on two more books and has published numerous articles along with reviews and encyclopedia entries. She has also been invited to speak at many lectures and has presented conference papers.
Derbes most recently served in the art department at Hood College from 1985-2012.
This lecture was established, through an endowment, in honor of David Lockmiller and his interest in art history. Lockmiller is the father of former ECU professor Dr. Carlotta Lockmiller.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
