    Third Thursday Lecture | Friends, Romans, and George Wythe | April 16, 2015

    Linda Tesar, Head of Technical Services, William & Mary School of Law Wolf Law Library. George Wythe was not only America’s first law professor, but also one of the most revered founding fathers in the American revolution. An esteemed teacher and mentor of Thomas Jefferson, and delegate to the Second Continental Congress, Wythe’s teachings and intellect played a pivotal role in shaping a young United States.   Matilda of Canossa & The Origins of the Renaissance highlights the importance of Matilda’s revival of the study of Roman Law in the founding of the United States. Through careful examination of Wythe’s library and published case reports, Linda Tesar will explore the link between Wythe’s twin devotions to the law and Roman classics to see if he was indeed the first lecturer on Roman Law in America. Third Thursday lectures are at 6 PM and followed by a reception sponsored by EVB.

    Selected Topics in Architecture: Time Out of Line: the Artist and the Architectural Model

    Carolyn Yerkes, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Art & Archaeology, Princeton University In this session, we will explore the historical episodes when architectural models were the subject of art works. What role did models play in Renaissance architecture, and what can these models tell us about the process of design? Prints, paintings, and drawings of models invite us to tackle these issues, by bringing to the fore a new corpus of images. Drawings of models also present problems of representation: when and how did artists begin to survey architectural models, and why did they consider them a suitable subject for portraiture? Answers to these questions help us to drill deeper into problems of artistic process during the Renaissance. May 5, 2015 at 6:00PM Sheridan Gallery
