    Harvard’s Germanic Museum: A History

    Joanna Wendel, Curatorial Assistant of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museums

    Adolphus Busch Hall once housed Harvard’s Germanic Museum, the precursor to the Busch-Reisinger Museum. It still contains the museum’s founding collection of plaster casts of medieval sculpture and architecture. This talk will examine the museum’s origins and evolution through a discussion of the building’s architecture, the plaster cast collection, and frescoes by Lewis Rubenstein (Harvard Class of 1936).

    Free admission. Open to the public.

    Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion.
