Art Study Center Seminar: Intersections between Media—European Medals, Prints, and Paintings from the 16th to 19th Century at Harvard Art Museums

Friday, April 5, 2019 11:00am

In this seminar, Jessie Park, the Rousseau Curatorial Fellow in European Art, and Kirsten Burke, a Ph.D. student in the Department of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard, will explore new ways of seeing medals as they intersect with other artistic media.

A rare opportunity to engage with these small works up close, this seminar will illuminate the importance of medals as artistic masterpieces, technological innovations, and identity-makers, from which various social and political implications were generated in surprising and compelling ways.

The seminar will take place in the Art Study Center, Level 4.
