Docent Lecture: "Artful Animals," Julia Geist

Anonymous Indian artist, Composite Camel, 19th century
November 5, 2013 -
1:00pm2:00pm

From sustenance to companionship, animals have played a variety of roles in our lives and inspire a range of emotions—fear, love, awe—as well as a host of symbolic associations. This exhibition draws from the vast resources of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts to produce a compelling portrait of the animal world, represented in a wide array of cultures, artistic styles, and media from about AD 1500 to the present.
