Art in Focus: Martin van Meytens II, Portrait of a Boy, ca. 1750 – FUAM @ Fairfield University Art Museum, Bellarmine Hall | Fairfield | Connecticut | United States

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 December 14, we’ll be looking together at this portrait of an unidentified youth by the Swedish-Dutch painter Martin van Meytens II, who became a fixture at the imperial court in Vienna after 1730, painting many members of the aristocratic elite.

Join us for the opportunity to engage deeply with this work of art in a relaxed atmosphere. Reserve your seat now!
