Curatorial Associate Danielle Bennett will introduce the main techniques used in Athenian vase painting. In particular, she will discuss the black-figure wine cooling vessel (psykter) depicting the Gigantomachy and the red-figure drinking vessel (kylix) depicting a young athlete currently on display in the ancient art gallery and other highlights from the Menil Collection with a focus on how these objects were made.
Held every other Friday for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
