For six weeks this spring, Alexander Nemerov will be spending Sundays at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., where he will give the 66th annual A. W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts.
The topic of his lectures, The Forest: America in the 1830s, is the first ever in the history of the series to be about American painting and literature in the 19th century, and Nemerov, chair of the Department of Art and Art History and the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities, is the first Stanford professor to be invited by the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts to participate in the series.
The lecture series will be held in the East Building Auditorium at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, on March 26, April 2, 9, 23, and 30, and May 7, 2017, at 2:00 p.m.
The series will be recorded but not live. Please check back to this page on the National Gallery of Art website, where the lectures will be uploaded approximately a week after each lecture.*/
