ARTH502 - Introduction to Object-based Study

Topic varies
Section 301 - SEM
[Open only to Graduate Students in the School of Arts and Sciences] This seminar will engage with the knowledge available from the close study of individual objects and object classes, based on the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (where the course will meet). Weekly meetings with PMA curators and conservators will introduce issues of technical analysis, connoisseurship, cataloguing, and display, whether in temporary exhibitions or permanent installations. Not confined only to European traditions or paintings but inclusive in scope, this seminar should provide valuable hands-on experience for beginners and veterans alike.
