Sixteenth-and-Seventeenth Century Old Master Works on Paper | Snite Museum of Art
March 31- June 23, 2013
NOTRE DAME, INDIANA – The Snite Museum of Art on the campus of the University of Notre Dame will put on view an exhibition, Sixteenth-and-Seventeenth Century Old Master Works on Paper. This exhibition will be the culmination of student coursework completed during the 2013 spring semester at Notre Dame and feature selections from the Museum’s collection of Old Master prints and drawings. Included in the exhibition are two recent acquisitions – Jusepe de Ribera’s Drunken Silenus (1628) and Antonio da Trento’s Martyrdom of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, After Parmigianino (ca. 1525) – on public display for the first time.
Under the guidance of Associate Professor of Art History Robert Randolf Coleman, six students have used their course to explore the intersection of art historical research and curatorial practice. Students study the Snite Museum’s rich collection of works on paper, design an exhibition showcasing their ideas, and publish an exhibition catalog illustrating their research on the works selected.
