Date: 10/26/14

Time: 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

Like J.P. Morgan and other members of the Gilded Age elite, Henry Walters was an “omnivorous” collector of art. To mark the opening of From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story, Walters curator Jo Briggs, Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library and Museum, and John Ott, associate professor at James Madison University consider how discriminating purchasing cemented social relationships at the turn of the century.
