Event Description:
Collecting Old Masters in the Bluegrass: European Paintings from  The Speed Art Museum
Kim Spence, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs Speed Art Museum, Louisville, KY

The years between 1600 and 1800 witnessed a rich cultural and artistic flowering in Europe. Increasingly diversified sources of patronage, formalized artistic training, and a thriving art market encouraged specialization, with artists depicting a variety of subjects ranging from religious and mythological themes to portraits and scenes from daily life. Coinciding with the presentation of Rembrandt, Rubens, Gainsborough and the Golden Age of Painting at the Orlando Museum of Art, and the correlating exhibition Glimpses into the Golden Age on view at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Kim Spence will examine the cultural changes that influenced artists and the paintings they produced; explore the sitters, stories, and subjects portrayed in the exhibition; and discuss how these remarkable works of art were collected by the Speed Art Museum.
