During this exciting period, images were captured for many different reasons—from documentation to curiosity—and they came in many forms, including deluxe book illustrations, portable portrait cards, and frame-worthy landscape views.

      Exhibition: Photography and Discovery

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Daily until February 5, 2017

      When photographs were first widely produced and distributed during the second half of the nineteenth century, they offered viewers new ways to discover unfamiliar people, distant places, and things previously unknown to them. This exhibition considers these three broad groups of subjects that manifested photographically during the medium’s first seventy years. During this exciting period, images were captured for many different reasons—from documentation to curiosity—and they came in many forms, including deluxe book illustrations, portable portrait cards, and frame-worthy landscape views. On view through February 5, 2017.

      Lecture: Marden Nichols, The Painted Stage

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      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.

      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.
