Art at Lunch: Withdrawing the Veil: Intermedial Impulses in Peter Frederick Rothermel's Battle of Gettysburg

Wednesday, September 26

Art Community Parkway District

Bring your lunch and enjoy discussions and lectures with scholars and artists covering a variety of topics related to PAFA’s exhibitions, collections, and areas of interest. All lectures take place in the Hamilton auditorium.

Ramey Mize, Phd. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania, explores the ways in which the Civil War’s visual culture revealed death in unprecedented, graphic detail and how photography and illustrated journalism consequently put pressure on history painting to do the same, but with less acceptable results.
