Etruscan Italy: Life and Afterlife

Friday, February 28, 2020   7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Saturday, February 29, 2020   10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

The Etruscans were major contributors to some of Western civilization’s greatest achievements in architecture, engineering, and art. A sophisticated and wealthy people living in central Italy between the 8th and 2nd centuries BCE, the Etruscans leave us much of their past through their material culture, namely, tombs, temples, habitation sites, and more. By the 7th century BCE the Etruscans had created a broad network of commercial and artistic trade routes throughout the Mediterranean and were avid importers of Greek and Near Eastern art. Their artistic legacy lives on in their tomb paintings, bronze and clay sculpture, vase paintings and gold jewelry. In fact, since their literature has not survived, it is from their material history that we learn about their fascinating culture.

Artistic Responses to Napoleon: Beethoven, Goya and Goethe

Friday, May 1, 2020   7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Saturday May 2, 2020   10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Hope and Change could have been Napoleon’s election campaign themes had he been required to submit his leadership to a vote. But reality set in quickly enough, as is revealed by artistic responses to Napoleonic times: Beethoven in music, Goya in art, and Goethe in literature. Beethoven’s disillusionment is legendary, as is his music inspired by the Emperor. Goya’s politically incendiary depictions of war, considered the tortured psychological visions of an isolated recluse, revealed his struggle to deal with a chaotic and rapidly changing world. German writers from Goethe to Kleist and Adele Schopenhauer wavered between admiration and horror, like Tolstoy, revealing the ambivalence of many writers and artists of the times.
