Beyond Bosch: The Afterlife of a Renaissance Master in Print
Friday, April 17, 9:00 am–4:00 pm. Free.
Registration required.


In conjunction with the opening of Beyond Bosch: The Afterlife of a Renaissance Master in Print, the Museum has invited three prominent scholars, Matthijs Ilsink, Nadine Orenstein, and Larry Silver, to join the exhibition's curators and lead a day of in-depth discussions in the galleries. Attendees will have the opportunity for a first viewing of the exhibition before the Museum opens to the public and to participate in dialogue with scholars and the works themselves. The prints on display raise many issues central not only to the study of Hieronymus Bosch but early modern art in general: changing notions of authorship, invention, the rise of the print market, and the function and meaning of new categories of imagery as well as collecting culture. The exhibition also addresses the relation between Bosch and the prints of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, who launched his career in dialogue and competition with the legacy of his predecessor.

This event is free, but advance registration is required. Space is limited. To register, email studyday@slam.org or call the Study Day hotline at 314-655-5136. You will receive a response to confirm your registration.
