Aaron Wile, Watteau: Making as Meaning
The Frick Collection, New York, 13 July 2016

Jean-Antoine Watteau’s military works proffer a modern vision of war in which the soldier’s inner life is brought to the fore. This talk, presented by the curator of the special exhibition Watteau’s Soldiers: Scenes of Military Life in Eighteenth-Century France (on view until October 2), examines how the problem of representing interiority informed the artist’s working methods. Wednesday, July 13, 6pm.

Aaron Wile is the Anne L. Poulet Curatorial Fellow at The Frick Collection.
