Event Description
Please join Megan Young, Mellon Foundation/Loo Family Intern, European & American Art, for a discussion of how visualizations of trauma in art before the modern era provided catharsis for the maker and the viewer. Although many of the works from this period are religious in content, their influence on society was not always religious in nature.
