Meet-the-Faculty Art History Lecture Today

ArtsCanisius presents a Meet-the-Faculty lecture by Claire Kovacs, PhD, assistant professor of art history, today (Monday, January 27) at noon in the Regis Room. The lecture, entitled “Telemaco Signorini, a Tuscan-Parisian Conduit” is free and open to the public.

Dr. Kovacs is an expert on nineteenth-century European art, and will consider the career of Florentine painter Telemaco Signorini as an example of an Italian artist who was not only dealing with the recent shift of the capital of the art world to Paris, but was also struggling to define himself and his art within the newly-formed nation of Italy.

For more information, please visit or call the Fine Arts Office at Ext. 2542.
