Harvard Art Museums
32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA
Join curatorial fellow Talitha Maria G. Schepers for an interactive talk that explores why 17th-century Dutch artists decided to draw female nudes from life, the conventions they broke while doing so, and why they used blue paper. The talk will focus on a recent installation of Dutch drawings in the 17th-Century Dutch and Flemish Art Gallery (2300).
Our galleries are full of stories—this series of talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.
Talitha Maria G. Schepers, Stanley H. Durwood Foundation Curatorial Fellow, Division of European and American Art
