Members Opening: Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe

Members of the Walters Art Museum are invited to be among the first to view this groundbreaking exhibition before it opens to the public. The exhibition, Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe, explores the little known presence of Africans and their descendants in Europe from the late 1400s to the early 1600s.  During the European Renaissance, there was a new focus on the identity and perspective of the individual. Africans living or visiting Europe at this time included artists, aristocrats, saints, slaves and diplomats.
