    Identity and the Art of the Middle Ages

    Charlotte Gray, Agnes Mongan Curatorial Intern, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums, and PhD candidate, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University

    Arthur Kingsley Porter, professor of medieval art at Harvard between the world wars, saw in the sculpture of the Middle Ages a Europe unconcerned with national boundaries. His view was uniquely American, and much of Harvard’s medieval art came to Cambridge because of his innovative thinking. This talk will consider works in their medieval and later contexts, focusing on issues of style and recognition, propaganda, and modern notions of the nation-state.

    Free with the price of admission (admission to the Sackler Museum is free on Saturdays from 10am–noon). Open to the public.

    Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion.
