Gallery Course: Art of the Middle Ages
The art created during the Middles Ages has frequently puzzled viewers. It doesn’t resemble what preceded it nor what followed. Focusing on the museum's permanent collection, ranging from Roman marbles to the early Renaissance, educator Mary Lenihan discusses the changes in technique and subject matter that help explain this long period in art history. A private gallery tour follows the lecture.
