Event Description
What can we learn from an early 16th-century Flemish altarpiece? Join Steve Goddard, Senior Curatorial, Prints & Drawings for the Spencer Museum of Art as we will look at scientific data, style analysis, workshop practice, artistic source material and other kinds of information to try to answer this question. We will be looking at a specific work in the collection of the Spencer Museum of Art, a triptych of the Deposition by an artist known as the Master of Frankfurt. We will also make an educated guess about the identity of this painter.
