Harvard Art Museums | Virtual Student Guide Tour: Staged, with Maeve Miller
September 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm
In her tour, Maeve Miller ’22 will explore how performance and entertainment figure into three works of art. She will examine the woodcut Magician (1956), which Erich Heckel made in Germany more than 40 years after the heyday of his involvement with the Expressionist art movement; the painting Ventriloquist (1952), which Jacob Lawrence made in Harlem, New York, as part of his Performance Series; and a woodblock print depicting two actors, which was made in the late Edo Period (1794) by Tōshūsai Sharaku, a semi-legendary print designer about whom little is known. Miller will consider why the artists might have chosen these subjects and what the works reveal about both the artists and performers portrayed within them.
