Thursday, October 11, 2012
02:00 PM–03:00 PM
Members-Only Cura-TOUR: Shared Histories: Paul Delaroche and William Walters

Shared Histories: Paul Delaroche and William Walters
Free for Members and their Guest; No registration required.

Join Jo Briggs, Assistant Curator of Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Art for a talk focusing on the Walters' small-scale replica of Paul Delaroche's semi-circular mural representing great artists from throughout history. Executed between 1836 and 1841 for École des Beaux-Arts (School of Fine Arts) in Paris, the mural was named by the English novelist Charles Dickens as "The greatest work of art in the world." As a consequence the replica, dated 1853, was considered one of the most significant French paintings in William Walters' collection during the nineteenth-century.
