"Styles of Meaning: Jan Gossart's 'Adoration of the Kings'"

Visiting Scholar (Washington, D.C.)

In Dr. Acres's "Styles of Meaning: Jan Gossart's 'Adoration of the Kings,'" he examines Gossart's and other Netherlandish altarpieces and the meaning of their figures, symbols, and modes of viewing. Acres also highlights a few mysteries that remain surrounding the altarpiece, including a shadowy angel/demon figure. This lecture is sponsored by the Visiting Artists and Scholars Committee.
