The rise of Michelangelo, Dürer and Titian brought with it a new form of cultural stardom. These Renaissance artists were the first whose faces became almost as recognisable as their art. Michelangelo was one of the biggest of these stars, but being Michelangelo was no easy thing: he was stalked by fans, lauded and lambasted by critics, and depicted in unauthorized portraits. This session traces the process by which artists such as Michelangelo, Dürer, and Titian became early modern celebrities.
