Meet the Artist: UNCG's Lawrence Jenkens
Lawrence Jenkens began heading the University of NC at Greensboro’s Art Department in 2010. For decades he’s been fascinated by the art and architecture of fifteenth-century Italy, and he’s taught multiple aspects of Italian art from the late medieval period through the Baroque. David Ford began by asking what changed in Italian art from the 15th to 16th centuries.
