Join James Wehn, guest curator of Elegance and Intrigue: French Society in 18th-Century Prints and Drawings, for a discussion of the sophisticated designs and enthralling scenes of love and war featured in the exhibition. While exploring classical tales, moral codes, and erotic innuendo, the talk will especially consider the allure of drawings during the 1700s and why French art collectors and critics highly prized them as signs of an artist’s mind and spirit.
