Bearing Witness, and the Artist as Historian: free talk by Prof Deborah Gare

The artist, Hans Holbein, engineered the royal wedding between Henry VIII and Anne of Cleves—and doomed it to failure when, in real life, the princess did not live up to the beauty of her portrait.  In another country, and another century, Eugene Delacroix recorded the uprising of the French people in 1830 in his iconic work ‘Liberty Leading the People’.  Can history be read through works of art? In this fascinating talk Notre Dame’s professor of history, Deborah Gare, will reveal how art bears witness to extraordinary events of our past and how, indeed, painters might sometimes be considered historians.  Due to the popularity of Notre Dame’s festival talks, this year’s weekday program will be available to both morning and evening audiences.
