Works on Paper Highlights Talk: Views of Venice

August 28 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The iconic architecture of Venice has captured the imagination of artists and aesthetes for centuries. In the final presentation of this summer’s Works on Paper Highlights Talks, William Satloff, graduate intern in the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, highlights prints of Venice’s Piazza San Marco by American and British artists (1900–1930) and discusses the Renaissance architecture of that site.

Visit the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, which houses the Clark’s collection of more than 6,500 prints, drawings, and photographs. Each week, discover a unique selection of rarely exhibited works on paper with a member of the curatorial department. Offered Wednesdays in August from 1–1:30 pm.

Topics and presenters include:

August 7: “Many Happy Returns!” with Alexis Goodin, associate curator

August 14: “Curator’s Choice” with Esther Bell, deputy director and Robert and Martha Berman Lipp Chief Curator
