    Rediscovering Harvard’s Germanic Museum

    Presented by at Adolphus Busch Hall

    April 11, 2010


    Rediscovering Harvard’s Germanic Museum

    Gallery Talk with Nathan Timpano, 2009–10 Stefan Engelhorn Curatorial Fellow, Harvard Art Museum/Busch-Reisinger Museum

    Adolphus Busch Hall once housed Harvard’s Germanic Museum, a precursor of the Busch-Reisinger. This talk will trace the museum’s history through a discussion of architecture, historiography, the museum’s collection of plaster casts, and the nostalgia for pre-modern Germanic art that existed in the 19th and early 20th centuries. A review of Lewis Rubenstein’s frescoes (1936) in the foyer will conclude the presentation.

    Free admission. Open to the public.
    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
