Birds in Art
Program by Elana Kaplan
Metropolitan Museum Educator
From the earliest days, humans have incorporated images of birds in their decorative works of art -- paintings, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, tapestries, and jewelry. The prestigious Metropolitan of Art has thousands of examples. Elana has chosen a sampling, and will discuss masterpieces from a variety of cultures, including Tiffany, Lafarge, and Egyptian art works.
