April 20, 2017 | Dr. John T. Spike | Third Thursday Lecture Series | 6 PM 

Now on view in the downstairs Sheridan Gallery, The Art & Science of Connoisseurship casts an expert eye at six recent acquisitions for the Muscarelle Museum of Art’s permanent collection. These paintings by an outstanding group of artists — Agnolo Bronzino, Annibale Carracci, Guido Reni, Peter Lely, Peter Paul Rubens and Paul Cèzanne — represent several centuries of achievement, ranging in date from 1529 to 1866. In his illustrated lecture, Chief Curator, Dr. John T. Spike will be our guide through this fascinating show devoted to the pinnacles and pitfalls in the identification of these previously misattributed works of art. Dr. Spike will be filling in for our previously announced speaker, his friend Marco Grassi, renowned art restorer, who will speak at a future date.

A reception will follow the lecture.

The event will also be broadcast on Facebook Live starting at 6 PM for those joining us at home.
