    Lecture Series, In-Sight: Looking Deeper and Differently

    Lecture by Miriam Stewart, assistant curator, Department of Drawings, Harvard Art Museum/Fogg Museum

    When Henry James saw Edward Burne-Jones's watercolor series The Days of Creation exhibited in 1877, he noted the artist's "imagination, his fertility of invention, his exquisiteness of work, his remarkable gifts as a colourist." This splendid series in the Harvard Art Museum collection invites close examination of such essential issues as painting materials, iconography, collecting, and reproduction.

    Join us for a new series of lectures that will explore individual objects from the Harvard Art Museum collection and beyond. Each lecture will look deeply at a single work of art, inviting interpretations that probe beneath the surface. Approaching each work from multiple perspectives, we will examine the techniques, contexts, and stories that helped shape these exceptional works, and their significance to the Art Museum.

    Series tickets $90 (members $60; complimentary series admission for members at Sustaining level and above). Individual lectures $18 (members $12).
    Space is limited and registration is strongly encouraged; please call 617-495-0534 or email artmuseum_membership@harvard.edu for more information.

    Complimentary parking at Broadway Garage, 7 Felton Street. Members will receive invitations in the mail.
