Art History: Augustus Saint-Gaudens

Join us for a discussion of one of America’s finest sculptors. Trained in the Classical tradition, Saint-Gaudens rose to fame in America for his Civil War memorials, coin designs and portraits of famous Americans in the late 19th century. We will look at many of Saint-Gaudens’s well-known monumental works such as the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial and his portrait of Abraham Lincoln. We will also examine his lesser-known low-relief works and the extraordinary Adams Memorial in Washington, D.C. Presented by Ann Shifflet from Columbus College of Art and Design.

Art History: Heinrich Schliemann and "Priam's Treasure"

Schliemann was a pioneer in the field of archaeology and excavated some of the most important sites in the Western world, including Mycenae in Greece and (what he believed to be) ancient Troy in Turkey in the late 19th century. Interestingly, many of Schliemann’s methods and conclusions are the focus of controversy and debate by modern scholars, so we will discuss his fascinating legacy in the worlds of art, archeology and history. Presented by Ann Shifflet from Columbus College of Art and Design.
