Off the Wall: Informal Discussions About Art—Portrait of a Man: Govaert Flinck and the Rembrandt School

Art & Lunch Discussion
Time: 12:15pm
Location: Mahaney Center for the Arts, Room 125 and Museum

Carolina McGarity ’16.5, Robert F. Reiff Intern


Govaert Flinck’s Portrait of a Man bears remarkable similarity to Rembrandt’s self portraits. In this talk Reiff Intern Carolina McGarity ’16.5 will explore those similarities and examine the possibility of the sitter being Flinck or Rembrandt himself. As Flinck was a student of Rembrandt’s, it will also inspect the unique function of Rembrandt’s workshop and its possible effects on Flinck’s work. Enjoy further conversation over a light lunch in the lobby. Sponsored by the Middlebury College Museum of Art and the Committee on the Arts. Lunch is provided. $5 donation suggested; free to College ID cardholders.
