Professor Emerita Shelley Perlove, History of Art (UM-Dearborn), will give a Zoom lecture on February 25, 2021, at 7 PM. Her talk, “Treasures of Religious Art at the Detroit Institute of Arts,” is sponsored by the Michigan Center for Early Christian Studies (MCECS), the Department of Middle East Studies, and the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Program of the University of Michigan.

The presentation focuses upon the diverse and ever-changing interpretations of Christ and his mother Mary from the 13th through the 17th c. in Italy, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. Selected works will be discussed in terms of their meaning and cultural context, including Catholic and Protestant controversies. Also of interest are the varied techniques in wood, marble, gold, and paint, as well as issues of museum display. In many cases an attempt will be made to “reconstruct” the original functions of these works created for ecclesiastical and domestic settings.
