Milwaukee Art Museum -- Calendar

Lecture: Shakespeare's Characters and Thomas Sully's Representations

Thursday, November 7, 2013, 6:15 PM

Delve deeper into Thomas Sully's portraits of Shakespeare’s characters, such as those in Thomas Sully: Painted Performanceand how they reflect the exciting world of early nineteenth-century Shakespearean productions. Dr. Darlene Farabee, Shakespeare professor, University of South Dakota, will focus on the ways that Sully’s portraits allow us to better understand how Shakespeare’s plays were interpreted and presented in the exceptionally active theater world of the period.

Join us for dinner afterwards in Café Calatrava at $50/person. RSVP for dinner to Catherine Sawinski at 414-224-3293 or
