Power, Propaganda & The Tudor Dynasty Through the Lens of History & Art

May 16 @ 10:30 am - 2:15 pm


Lincroft Main Campus

Although ruling for less than 120 years, the Tudors remain one of the most famous royal dynasties in history, and a source of endless fascination. In pre-modern times, when most of the population of any country was illiterate, political leaders depended on visual depictions of themselves to convey their power and authority. In fifteenth and sixteenth century England, the kings and queens of the Tudor Dynasty were fortunate to have access to some of the greatest Renaissance artists to illustrate their royal supremacy. In an era of dramatic religious, social and political change, in the midst of challenges to their very right to rule, Tudor monarchs portrayed their wealth and power through portraits.

Historian Dell O’Hara will share the tumultuous reigns of Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary and Elizabeth, providing context for artist, Gene Wisniewski’s discussion of the part the clothing they’re shown wearing and other subtle symbols appearing in the family’s royal portraits played in communicating their power.
