From lustrous satin fabrics and lace collars to theatrical storytelling and scenes of everyday life, the paintings in Treasures of British Art are a feast for the eyes and imagination.
Using the exhibition as a springboard, teaching specialist Molly Medakovich will shed light on the broad context of the British art world from the 1500s through the 1800s and explore multiple "looking tools" for savoring the works on view.
Doors open at 1:30 pm.
Lecture tickets—$20 DAM members, $25 nonmembers—are not yet on sale.
