"Medieval and Renaissance artists struggled with the complexities of showing the anatomy of babies in paintings of the Madonna and child. In particular, the accurate depiction of baby fat, or 'pudge', was a significant challenge for artists who often solved this difficult aesthetic and theological problem with 'unique' solutions. Through a historic overview of the representation of baby anatomy in Florentine painting from the late 1200's to early 1500's, combined with personal artistic experience in infant anatomy, this talk will explore the development of baby fat in the Renaissance and reveal the techniques artists used to represent the wonderful ripples of 'pudge.'"
