The Challenge of Donatello’s Magdalen
Adrian Randolph is Professor of Art History and Dean of the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences at Northwestern University. His work examines medieval and Renaissance Italian art and architecture, with a focus on Florence. Research interests include gender, politics, poetry, space, sense and emotion in relation to fifteenth-century Italian, and especially Florentine, painting, sculpture and architecture. His current research, from which his Ludden Lecture is drawn, considers Donatello’s Mary Magdalen alongside issues of cultural, material and biological hybridity.
