Philippe de Montebello: The Multiple Lives of the Work of Art

September 20, 2017 17:30 to 18:30


Speaker: Philippe de Montebello
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.
Gartner Auditorium

Director emeritus of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Philippe de Montebello was the longest-serving director in the museum’s history, from 1977 to 2008. During that time he oversaw not only a doubling of the Met’s physical space, but also the acquisition of key masterworks for its collection. Since his retirement, de Montebello has remained active as a teacher and author. His talk examines how the changing contexts of works of art, as well as the changes in their appearance over time—often quite surprising—impact their meaning and thus our response. Few works appear to us as they were originally conceived, as they undergo many transformations in the course of their existence—from natural degradations to deliberate alterations, sometimes benign, often traumatic.

Free; reservations required. Reservations begin on Monday, August 28.
