Barberini Faun - In-Sight Evenings: Looking Deeper and Differently
December 8, 2010
Stephan Wolohojian, Landon and Lavinia Clay Curator, and Head, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums
The great Hellenistic marble known as the “Barberini Faun” is one of the key works in the Western canon. Since it was unearthed in Rome in 1627, the Faun, which is now in Munich, has undergone several restorations, some by renowned sculptors. Looking at the earliest model for the first restoration of the Faun which the Harvard Art Museums acquired last year, this lecture will explore the reception and history of the celebrated sculpture.
The In-Sight Evenings series features talks by curators, after-hours viewing of the galleries, live music, conversation, and refreshments. Other events:
