    The Bronze Age: Bronze as a Material from Antiquity to the Early 20th Century

    Lisa Anderson, Frederick Randolph Grace Assistant Curator of Ancient Art, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art

    An alloy of copper and tin, stronger and more malleable than either element alone, bronze is an essential, intrinsically valuable material. For over 5,000 years it has been used to create artistic and practical objects, from sculpture to weapons, jewelry, coins, and vessels. This talk will focus on aspects of bronze manufacture, its survival, and its use in creating portraits, icons, and objects of everyday life. Presented in conjunction with a temporary installation of bronzes in Re-View.

    Free with the price of admission.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
