Athene's presentation was thorough and thoughtful. Details make a rich presentation and Athene shared a scale copy of the Diptych. J appreciated her explaining gilding techniques and rich symbolism in this treasure. I will take another lecture from her whatever subject.
I had never heard about the Wilton Diptych. Athene gave a great history of the piece and also the technique used in its creation.
I really enjoyed this discussion. The symbolism was interesting but the discussion of the components and techniques used to create the diptych was simply fascinating. This was one of my favorite conversations to date. Highly recommended!
Professor Reiss's presentation was informative and well organized. I came away from the presentation with a deeper knowledge of the Diptych and how it was created.
