Art Professor to Present at Getty
Nov 29, 2010Concordia professors are always willing to share their knowledge, be it with students in their classes or audiences at world famous museums. Dr. Peter Schultz, chair of Concordia’s art department and director of the Cyrus M. Running Gallery, will do the latter at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, Calif., on Dec. 2.
His presentation explores the use of divine imagery to depict kings, queens and other rulers in the Hellenistic period of Greek history. He will use a monument built by Philip of Macedonia and his son, Alexander the Great, to explore the tradition.
With help from fellow art professor David Boggs who drew a full reconstruction of the building, Schultz will analyze the monument’s appearance and meaning and explore how it ushered in this new style of representation for Hellenistic kings and queens.
