Throughout the centuries the wind has been looked at as both a positive and negative phenomena. Winds have been associated with fecundity; spring and angels yet have also been viewed as the personification of destruction and the devil. How did visual artists depict this invisible force? Tonight on Inquiry we have an enlightening conversation with ALESSANDRO NOVA, Co-director of the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut. He has just written THE BOOK OF THE WIND: THE REPRESENTATION OF THE INVISIBLE, an interesting and beautiful art book on art and nature that discusses this very complex and fascinating subject. Tune in for wonderful discussion about art, culture and nature.
