modern art in a museum in Rome
Display in the Maiakovskii Museum
A little about me
spent the fall of 2010 in Moscow teaching and doing research. Some of the
pictures on this page are from that trip -- the Tatlin reconstruction,
for example, and a view inside the amazing Maiakovskii Museum. Rome is
another city I love. I've included a partial view of the Bernini colonnade
in the Vatican piazza and a photograph of art in a Roman museum. My newest
passion is for Dante and I hope to go to Florence soon.

history videos, made to acompany ART216: watch and enjoy (?); the longest
is shorter than 20 minutes; most are about 10 - 15 minutes; they have images
and narration (you'll need a video player of some sort)
My STITAH Videos
Videos on Technical Art History: these videos
were made at a workshop in July 2015, sponsored by the Kress Foundation
and Yale University. I did not edit them or plan them: I turned on
my phone or my tablet and hit record. They are all very short because I
was concerned about using up my battery and in some cases, three or four
together capture most of a lecture. But inevitably there are blank spaces.
Also note that when I was filming someone's power point, the screen
often showed up as white light on my computer, even if there was color
in the original. The names for each video will give you an idea of
which pieces go together to more or less make a whole!
The exceptional were carried out at the IPHC
of Yale University, with the presenters primarily being Jens Stenger, Aniko
Bezur, and Erin Mysak. Others were involved and those of us in the workshop
are indebted to all of them.
