Join Classicisms co-curator Larry Norman for the talk “Fauvel, between Classicism and Romanticism.” The in-gallery talk will uncover how romantic and neo-classical ideas interact within Louis Dupré’s 1819 painting Portrait of M. Fauvel, the French Consul, with View of the Acropolis.
Norman is the Frank L. Sulzberger Professor, Romance Languages and Literatures, Theater and Performance Studies, Fundamentals, and the College at the University of Chicago.
