Fri. November 18, 2016
This past July, Professor of Art History Jeffrey Chipps Smith taught an intensive interdisciplinary graduate seminar at the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenüttel, Germany, one of Germany’s foremost research institutes and libraries. His course, “Art, Reformation, and the Cult of Martin Luther,” consisted of fourteen graduate students from more than six different countries.
Smith will also be delivering the opening public lecture on 20 November for the exhibition Renaissance & Reformation: German Art in the Age of Dürer and Cranach at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Smith was asked to write the catalogue’s only essay. The major show is co-curated by the museums of Berlin, Dresden, and Munich.
