  • Aaron Wile: "Watteau: Making as Meaning"

    Link to video of Aaron Wile lecture

    Jean-Antoine Watteau's military works proffer a modern vision of war in which the soldier's inner life is brought to the fore. This talk, presented by the curator of the special exhibition Watteau's Soldiers: Scenes of Military Life in Eighteenth-Century France, examines how the problem of representing interiority informed the artist's working methods.
