The Making of an Icon
Wednesday, November 15, 2006, 4:30pm
Lecture featuring Chris van Donkelaar
Part of the Malcove Collection Lecture Series
and a Malcove Collection 25th Anniversary Event
Icongraphy’s roots are from a time when the artist might be said to have “built” his art. The artist was expected to know about a great deal of different materials and manufacturing methods.
Daniel Thompson speaking of the pre-Renaissance arts in general, wrote that such works, even if they were not appreciated as good art, would still have to be appreciated because of how wondrously they were constructed. The lecture will elaborate on this complex process.
