This year’s Dr. Ruth Morris Bakwin Class of 1919 lecture will be given by William E. Wallace, the Barbara Murphy Bryant Distinguished Professor of Art History at Washington University and an internationally renowned scholar of the Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo Buonarroti. Wallace will offer new insights into this remarkably creative individual and explain how, in the last decades of his long life, Michelangelo was busier and more creative than ever. He not only transformed the practice of architecture, but also reshaped St. Peter’s Basilica and the skyline of Rome.
