Double Take: Madame Recamier: December 9

Specialists from various fields offer differing views on  objects and stimulate thinking about social context, artistic interpretation, and the ever-evolving meaning of objects. Sculptor Joseph Chinard’s marble bust of Juliette Récamier (1777–1849) portrays the renowned hostess of post-revolutionary French literary and political society. Daniel Harkett (Assistant Professor, History of Art + Visual Culture) and stone carver Tracy Mahaffey will discuss 19th-century image production on Friday, December 9, at 12 noon in the RISD Museum’s European Gallery.
