Join an in-depth tour of the exhibition Mutiny: Works by Géricault, on view from September 1, 2018-January 6, 2019. This tour will be led by A. Cassandra Albinson, the Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art, with Nina Athanassoglou-Kallmyer, professor emerita, 18th- and 19th-century European art at the University of Delaware. Mutiny: Works by Géricault explores compelling images by the Romantic period’s most influential artist, Théodore Géricault (1791–1824), whose powerful legacy endured long past his untimely death in his early 30s. Approximately 40 drawings, watercolors, lithographs, and paintings from the Harvard Art Museums collections, augmented by loans from three Boston-area collectors, tell a new story of this socially and politically engaged artist across a range of media. Free admission (this tour takes place during our free admission afternoons). The tour is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the tour, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.
