The Roman Artist at Work Lecture
August 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$8
OKCMOA is thrilled to welcome a series of world-renowned scholars of ancient Roman art and history in conjunction with their exciting exhibition, The Painters of Pompeii. Hosted in the Noble Theater for The Roman Artist at Work with John Clarke, Ph.D., Annie Laurie Howard Regents Professor, Department of Art & Art History, University of Texas at Austin. $5 members/$8 non-members Onsite in the Noble Theater The Roman Artist at Work Lecture examines the process of creating frescoes. This includes how artists made the pigments, laid out their designs, replicated figures and, at times, made near-exact copies of the same composition. The Painters of Pompeii displays instances of multiple versions of the same subject, inviting speculation on how artists used sketchbooks to create many versions of a composition in circulation among painters and their workshops.
