      Clark Art Institute

      Despite the undeniable importance of sound and song to dramatic performances, the ancient Romans referred to their audiences as spectatores, or viewers. This lecture uncovers an ancient Roman conception of theater as painting-in-motion and explores the repercussions of this frame of thought for simultaneous developments in painting and dramatic literature. Revolutionary, and lasting, innovations made by ancient Roman dramatists and painters during the Republic and early Empire were developed through a dialogue across the two media concerning ideas of space, representation, and artifice. 5:30pm – 6:30pm.

      An Inner World features seven exceptional genre paintings by Dutch artists working in or near the city of Leiden in the seventeenth century. Genre paintings, or scenes that take everyday life as their subject matter, flourished in the Dutch Republic in this period.

By encouraging a focused—and intimate—experience, this exhibition presents new ways of looking at tradition and innovation in genre painting in Leiden.

      Looking North and South: European Prints and Drawings, 1500-1650

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Daily until March 31, 2017

      Artists working in the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries experienced a fascinating and rich period of artistic exchange. While Northern artists traveled increasingly to Italy in this period, offering a profound response to Italian and antique art, exchange was not one-sided. The circulation of artistic ideas, practices, and traditions resulted in a mutual dialogue of inspiration and innovation across Europe. This exhibition explores the character of artistic exchange between the North and South through the production of prints, drawings, and rare books from c. 1500–1650. It considers how artists responded to the work of their contemporaries in different regions of early modern Europe, revealing intersections and divergences in artistic production, thought, and tradition.

The movements and contemplations offered with Sheng Zhen Gong help create the deep sense of inner peace akin to what many of us experienced as small children. Simplicity replaces complexity – the body softens, the negative emotions are released, and one experiences a feeling of perfect harmony with the universe.

      Looking North and South: European Prints and Drawings, 1500-1650

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Daily until April 30, 2017

      Artists working in the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries experienced a fascinating and rich period of artistic exchange. While Northern artists traveled increasingly to Italy in this period, offering a profound response to Italian and antique art, exchange was not one-sided. The circulation of artistic ideas, practices, and traditions resulted in a mutual dialogue of inspiration and innovation across Europe. This exhibition explores the character of artistic exchange between the North and South through the production of prints, drawings, and rare books from c. 1500–1650. It considers how artists responded to the work of their contemporaries in different regions of early modern Europe, revealing intersections and divergences in artistic production, thought, and tradition.
