Poussin: Arcadian Visions

My lecture at the Met today focuses on the museum’s special exhibition of Nicolas Poussin’s 17th Century landscapes. Truly an influential artist both for the beauty of his works and for the intellectual and emotional content of his landscape paintings, Poussin executed landscape paintings from which generations of artists would learn.

We will also take a look at Jeff Koons’ rooftop exhibition featuring his Balloon Dog (Yellow), Coloring Book and Sacred Heart (Red/Gold).
