Posted in lectures (to attend) by Editor on April 11, 2016

Upcoming talks at The Frick:

David Pullins, Shared Practices: Painting and Decoration in Eighteenth-Century France
The Frick Collection, New York, 20 April 2016

Motifs after François Boucher and other leading painters populate the surface of Sèvres porcelain, including pieces in The Frick Collection. David Pullins considers what it was about academic painters’ training and working methods that encouraged the adaptation of their motifs from canvas to porcelain, textiles, and other media. Wednesday, 20 April, 6pm, in the Music Room. Free, though seating is on a first-come, first-served basis; a live webcast will also be available.

David Pullins, The French Dialogue with Chinese Porcelain
The Frick Collection, New York, 21 April 2016

Focusing on examples from The Frick’s permanent collection, learn how France became familiar with Chinese culture through its porcelain, which traveled around the globe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. We will also ask how a foreign material was repackaged into a symbol of French cultural identity, one that was considered a necessary part of Gilded Age collections. Thursday, 21 April, 5:30pm. Advance registration is required; courses are free with a $25 student membership or a full membership for recent graduates.
