Each event in our Art in Focus series offers an opportunity for an hour of close looking and informal discussion around a single work of art, led by Curator of Education Michelle DiMarzo. On February 8, we’ll be looking at this large oil sketch by Gaulli for the nave fresco in the church of the Gesù in Rome. This extraordinary object comes to us on loan from the Princeton University Art Museum for the exhibition The Holy Name. Art of the Gesù: Bernini and his Age (February 2 – May 19, 2018).
Join us for the opportunity to engage deeply with this work of art in a relaxed atmosphere. Reserve your seat now!
