The Hours of Catherine of Cleves: What Makes a Dutch Masterpiece?
James H. Marrow, Professor Emeritus of Art History, Princeton University, and Honorary Keeper of Illuminated Manuscripts, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (UK)
What features distinguish the Hours of Catherine of Cleves from other works of the genre, and how ought we to interpret them? How and why does this book merit our interest and appreciation? In this lecture, Marrow will consider some of these issues and touch on questions concerning the book's function as an organ of private devotion and a work of art.
Wednesday, February 24, 2010, 6:30 p.m. *
Tickets: $15 for Non-Members; $10 for Members
* The exhibition Demons and Devotion: The Hours of Catherine of Cleves will be open at 5:30 PM especially for program attendees.
