× Art History Talks with Rebecca Albiani


How does a work of art attain iconic status? This year's art history lecture series will tackle this question via an up-close look at five icons of world art, from the ancient world to the 20th century. We will delve into these works and the circumstances that produced them, exploring questions such as should the British Museum return the Parthenon marbles to Athens? Did the Night Watch really sink Rembrandt’s career? And what might constitute the Great American Picture?

All lectures are held on Tuesdays at 11:30am Series tickets $60 - $80 Single tickets $16 - $24

Andy Warhol, Campbell’s Soup Cans February 12

When we think of Pop Art, we think of Warhol’s Cambpell's soup cans. We will see how deliberately Warhol set out to create an icon, and we will examine why so many Pop artists were borrowing from the supermarket shelves and other feminine realms for some of their best known imagery.
