French painter Jean Frédéric Bazille’s Summer Scene is one of the most iconic—and most enigmatic—paintings in the Harvard Art Museums collections. Join curator A. Cassandra Albinson as she traces this work’s history—from its making and its reception during Bazille’s lifetime to the painting’s final journey from France to Cambridge, in the summer of 1937.

Led by:
A. Cassandra Albinson, Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art, and Head, Division of European and American Art
