Lectures

Art historian Alvar González-Palacios presents his lecture "A Precious Vision of Antiquity" on the sumptuous surtouts de table created in Rome during the late eighteenth century by Luigi and Giuseppe Valadier and other artists. Intended for grand state dinners, these elaborate centerpieces feature miniature versions of ancient monuments, sculptures, and obelisks in bronze, porcelain, colored marble, and hardstone.

El Greco’s Vincenzo Anastagi  is one of three portraits from the painter’s formative Italian period. Jeongho Park explores the significance of this important work in the context of El Greco’s career and the implications of Henry Clay Frick's aquisition of this painting for his art collection. 
 
Jeongho Park is the Curatorial Research Associate at the Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas, Austin, and former Anne L. Poulet Fellow at The Frick Collection.
