Terracotta Figurines from Antiquity to Modernity

June 19, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 pm

Free

Continuing the free on-line Art Study Center Seminar at Home series, Harvard Art Museums is pleased to present Terracotta Figurines from Antiquity to Modernity.

In the 1870s, thousands of ancient terracotta figurines were discovered in cemeteries surrounding the small city of Tanagra in Greece. The figurines became a sensation with Victorian audiences. In this seminar, Frances Gallart Marques will discuss how the brightly colored figures of young women, at once lively and quiet, resonated with and inspired many works by 19th-century painters, musicians, and writers.

Led by:
Frances Gallart Marques, Frederick Randolph Grace Curatorial Fellow in Ancient Art
