Panel Discussion: Celebrating the Record

Thursday, November 11, 2021 @ 5:30 pm

Celebrate the newest volume of the Record of the Princeton University Art Museum. Now in its seventy-ninth year, the Record publishes research based on the Museum’s collections. Three authors who contributed to this volume, devoted to European Renaissance and Baroque art, will offer insights into their research.  

Charles Scribner III, Class of 1973 and Graduate School Class of 1977, will discuss a crucifix designed by Gianlorenzo Bernini that he has studied for over forty years. During her term as Robert Janson-La Palme, Graduate School Class of 1976, Visiting Professor, Maryan Ainsworth, Alvaro Saieh Curator Emerita in the Department of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, taught a seminar based on technical examinations, using the Museum’s holdings in her area of expertise, Northern fourteenth- through sixteenth-century painting. She will discuss the results of that research, as will Sarah Rapoport, Class of 2018, a graduate student at Yale University who worked on a painting by Joos van Cleve as part of the seminar. Moderated by Janet Rauscher, editor at the Princeton University Art Museum.
