Courtly Splendor: A Close Look at a 15th Century Rock Crystal Casket

FREE
No registration required.
Meet at 6:15pm in the Centre St. Lobby

Please join us for an evening gallery conversation with Dr. Eva Helfenstein, Mellon Fellow in Renaissance and Baroque Art at the Walters Art Museum, as she explores one of the most unusual pieces in the Cabinet of Wonders. The splendid rock crystal casket is a very rare example of late medieval court art still in existence today. The absence of directly comparable objects emphasizes the necessity of a close examination of the piece itself, with special attention to the materials and workmanship.

Please meet at 6:15 p.m. in the Centre Street Lobby. The group will then proceed to the Cabinet of Wonders.
