Art Study Center Seminar—Neither Icon nor Trinket: On Learning to Love Terracotta Figurines
March 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
If the first thing that pops into your mind when you think of the ancient Mediterranean is gleaming marble, join us for a fresh view of Greece and Rome through close looking at small terracotta figurines. Held in conjunction with the exhibition A World Within Reach: Greek and Roman Art from the Loeb Collection, this Art Study Center Seminar will offer insights into why small, broken, and humble figurines were chosen to be the stars of our show. Former curatorial fellow Frances Gallart Marqués will share how these objects were made, what they were used for, who loved them, and how we can best learn from them, regardless of their state of preservation.
Frances Gallart Marqués, former Frederick Randolph Grace Curatorial Fellow, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art
