Design [R]evolutions: Places for Paintings and Paintings for Places

Event Date: 
Wednesday, November 2, 2011
It is difficult to believe that the works of art we now see in museums were originally intended for display someplace else. The inaugural speaker for Desigh [R]evolutions, Dr. Nicholas Penny will discuss where several famous paintings now in public galleries were originally intended to hang, and how lighting, heigh, wall color, frames, and the functions of rooms exerted a decisive influence on the artists who painted them.
