From Inquisition to Enlightenment: Drawing in Spain
Join Edward Payne, the Morgan's Moore Curatorial Fellow, as he leads a discussion on Spanish drawings with Jonathan Brown, the Carroll and Milton Petrie Professor of Fine Arts, Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, and scholar Lisa Banner. They will explore how new research has altered the perception of the role of drawing in Spain from the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries, a period that witnessed the horror of the Inquisition, the rise of the Catholic Church, and the intellectual curiosity of the Enlightenment. This program is co-organized by the Morgan Drawing Institute.
