Lecture: Dürer’s Printed Passions

The greatest printmaker of his age, Albrecht Dürer often depicted the Passion in print and paint. In this lecture, Dr. Larry Silver, University of Pennsylvania, will examine the varied printed series of the Passion, including the Small Woodcut Passion, the Large Woodcut Passion, and the Engraved Passion, the last of which is on view in the exhibition. Because Dürer produced prints using woodcut and engraving, he developed new techniques within each medium, especially after his trip to Venice in 1505-7.

Courses for Young Professionals: From Flanders to Florence - Renaissance North and South

AT THE FRICK COLLECTION

Focusing on specific examples, Olivia Powell, Associate Museum Educator, The Frick Collection, Nathaniel Prottas, Director of Education, MOBIA, and participants will examine this long-standing paradigm, exploring the ways these pictorial traditions align and diverge.

Free. Registration is required. Space is limited to 20 participants. To register, please email education@mobia.org with the name of the course in the subject line.

November 12

6:30pm

Lecture: Giambattista to Giandomenico Tiepolo: from Tradition to Innovation in Christian Narrative

Though often regarded as merely a passive follower of his father Giambatista Tiepolo's art, Giandomenico in fact innovated in his own right. Nowhere does this surface better than in his series of almost two dozen engravings on the story of the holy family's Flight into Egypt. Altering a subject whose dramatic possibilities were almost downplayed in the history of painting, Giandomenico instead emphasized the wonder inherent in travel, the risks Mary and Joseph faced in protecting their infant son and the dangers they undertook when wandering into new lands.

Free. Reservations are not required but seating is limited and offered on a first-come first-served basis.

Lecture: Expressions of Faith: Twentieth-Century German Prints

Dr. Eric Zafran, MOBIA Consulting Curator, will discuss one of the highlights of Dürer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, the series of hand colored woodcuts by the 20th–century German artist Max Pechstein for The Lord’s Prayer of 1921. This serves to draw attention to the movement of German Expressionists, who combined influences from Renaissance masters, such as Dürer, and art from the South Seas. Their subject matter during the period before and after the First World War contained much social and political imagery, but several of these masters were drawn to powerful, graphic religious images.

Free. Reservations are not required but seating is limited and offered on a first-come first-served basis.
