Two of the exhibition curators, A. Cassandra Albinson, Curator of Paintings and Sculpture, Yale Center for British Art, and Izabel Gass, Graduate Research Assistant, Yale University Art Gallery and Yale Center for British Art, will provide a tour of The Critique of Reason: Romantic Art, 1760–1860. Albinson will be speaking about different modes of art making in the Romantic period, from the portrait to the collaborative artwork to the sketch. Focusing on works in the section “Distant Lands, Foreign Peoples,” Izabel will discuss how Romanticism represented facts and fictions about the non-European world. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, June 23, 2015 at 12:30 pm at the Yale University Art Gallery, 1111 Chapel Street, New Haven. The tour is free and open to the public.
The Critique of Reason is the first major collaborative exhibition between the Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art.
