Master Class: Northern European Art 1500-1700 from the Loeb
About the publication
A student of art history benefits immeasurably from encounters with original works of art. At Vassar, the study of art from Northern Europe of the 1500s and 1600s is inextricably linked to the firsthand examination of paintings, drawings, and prints. This exhibition and its accompanying brochure, focused on works from the Loeb’s permanent collection, explores the particular role of a campus collection in teaching the art of this period. Featured works include those by Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Joos van Cleve, Lucas van Leyden, Rembrandt, and Jan Lievens. The exhibition is organized in honor of the 43-year-long teaching career of Susan Donahue Kuretsky, Professor of Art on the Sarah Gibson Blanding Chair. Support for the publication was provided by the Smart Family Foundation.
Exhibition: April 27–September 2, 2018
