This exhibition presents the largest group of these paintings ever seen together. On this occasion, international scholars in the field are brought together to offer new insights on this defining series in history of early modernism. The symposium includes brief, illustrated papers, as well as a discussion moderated by Deborah Wye, The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Chief Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books, and the organizer of the exhibition. Participants include Charles W. Haxthausen, Robert Sterling Clark Professor of Art History, Williams College; Reinhold Heller, Professor Emeritus, Department of Art History, University of Chicago; Katharina Henkel, Curator, Kunsthalle Emden; Jill Lloyd, independent writer and curator; Sherwin Simmons, Professor of Twentieth Century Art and Design, Department of Art History, University of Oregon; Katharina Sykora, Professor, Department of Art History and Media Studies, Braunschweig University of Arts, Germany; among others.
