Frederick Ilchman, Chair, Art of Europe and Mrs. Russell W. Baker, Curator of Paintings, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
While Tintoretto was considered one of the “Big Three” 16th-century Venetian painters alongside Titian and Paolo Veronese during his lifetime and in the succeeding centuries, works by Tintoretto’s assistants and followers have frequently been misattributed to the master. Frederick Ilchman and his co-curator Robert Echols, independent scholar, are widely responsible for a new and more accurate understanding of Tintoretto’s oeuvre and chronology, first explored in the Museo del Prado’s Tintoretto exhibition in 2007.
This event begins with a coffee reception at 10:30 a.m. in Huber Court. The lecture begins at 11 a.m. in the Kaufman Theater.
