VISUAL ART LECTURE: CASANOVA ~ THE SEDUCTION OF EUROPE with Professor Thomas Germano
Thursday November 16, 2017
Casanova: The Seduction of Europe explores the 18th century across Europe through the eyes of one of its most colorful characters, Giacomo Casanova (1725--1798). Renowned in modern times for his amorous pursuits, Casanova lived not only in Italy, but in France and England, and his travels took him to the Ottoman Empire and to meet Catherine the Great in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
A visual art presentation of Paintings, sculpture, works on paper, furnishings, porcelains, silver and period costume will bring the world of Casanova's 18th century to life. The exhibition will be shown at the Kimbell Art Museum in TX from August 27 through December 31, 2017 before traveling to the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2018. Professor Thomas Germano will present a visual lecture relating the exhibition.
