In December Anne Dunlop, Associate Professor and Chair of the Newcomb Art Department, presented the lecture, Beauty, Male and Female, in Early Modern Portraits,” a look at the complicated role of beauty and idealization in a number of early portraits features examples by Vouet, Veronese, and others.

Professor Dunlop was one of seven renowned art historians from the United States and Europe discussing key works from the Blaffer Foundation collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
The lecture was part of “A Golden Age of European Art” celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation and the contribution that the foundation has made to the cultural life of the city of Houston and the state of Texas.
