VIRTUAL - Frances Gallart Marqués on “Terracotta Figurines from the Field to the Museum.”

April 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This is an online event Mechanicsville, VA United States.



AIA Society: Minneapolis/St. Paul

DESCRIPTION: In the 1870s, thousands of ancient terracotta figurines were discovered in cemeteries surrounding the small city of Tanagra in Greece. The brightly colored figures, many of which depicted young women, became a sensation with Victorian audiences and inspired new works by painters, musicians, and writers. In this talk, Frances Gallart Marqués will discuss the ramifications of the figurines’ discovery and the ways in which archaeologists and museums deal with their legacy today. PUBLIC talk co-sponsored with the Archaeological Institute of America and the University of St. Thomas Department of Art History: https://cas.stthomas.edu/departments/areas-of-study/art-history/index.html (scroll down to “Events” to register)
