What defines a masterpiece?

 

Join fellow Suffolk University alumni as we consider the definition of a masterpiece.

High Museum special exhibit, The Louvre and the Masterpiece, will explore how the definition of a “masterpiece,” as well as taste and connoisseurship, have changed over time. The exhibition will feature ninety-one works of art drawn from all eight of the Musée du Louvre’s collection areas, spanning 4,000 years. Paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and drawings will reflect three major themes: the changing historical and cultural definitions of a masterpiece; authenticity and connoisseurship; and the evolution of taste and scholarship.

Randy Hyman JD ’86, High Museum docent, will provide us an extraordinary “insiders” look at this unique exhibit.
