Virtual Curators Conversations

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday December 4

7:00 PM  –  8:00 PM


Robert Evrén, Consulting Curator for European Art, speaks about the rewards of researching objects in the permanent collection and some of the discoveries it yielded. Among the objects to be discussed are a marriage picture from the workshop of Flemish painter Ambrosius Francken; a polychrome statue attributed variously to members of one of Spain's great medieval sculpture dynasties; Nosadella's Madonna and Child in Glory, and the reason for the Virgin’s strange gesture in the piece; a church interior by Dirk Van Delen; and a drawing from the studio of Giulio Romano. The discussion touches on the importance of connoisseurship and careful study of the object.
