Join us for an in-depth tour of our exhibition Mutiny: Works by Géricault, on view from September 1, 2018 through January 6, 2019. This tour will be led by A. Cassandra Albinson, the Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art, with Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer, professor emerita, 18th- and 19th-century European art at the University of Delaware.
Mutiny: Works by Géricault explores compelling images by the Romantic period’s most influential artist, Théodore Géricault (1791–1824), whose powerful legacy endured long past his untimely death in his early 30s. Approximately 40 drawings, watercolors, lithographs, and paintings from the Harvard Art Museums collections, augmented by loans from three Boston-area collectors, tell a new story of this socially and politically engaged artist across a range of media.
Free admission (this tour takes place during our free admission afternoons). The tour is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the tour, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.
Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
Mutiny is curated by A. Cassandra Albinson, the Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art; with contributions by Jessie Park, the Rousseau Curatorial Fellow in European Art, and Ashley Hannebrink, curatorial graduate student intern in the Division of European and American Art.
This exhibition is made possible by funding from the Gurel Student Exhibition Fund. We also thank the three anonymous lenders, each of whom is dedicated to the study and appreciation of Géricault’s work.
