This Conversation will introduce participants to the rich holdings of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and includes a brief history of the museum as well as an overview of its Old Master, Modern, and Contemporary works.

During the webinar, participants will learn about classic works by Roger Van der Weyden, Agnolo Bronzino, Peter Paul Rubens, and Nicolas Poussin, as well as more modern highlights by Paul Cézanne, Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, and Giorgio de Chirico. Finally, we will close with an overview of some of the museum's contemporary holdings, touching on Ellsworth Kelly, Bruce Nauman, and, especially, Jasper Johns.

Led by an expert on Modern and Contemporary as well as Renaissance art history, Jennie Hirsh, this interactive seminar will show unique aspects of the encyclopedic collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of both the breadth and depth of the collection.
