Our monthly Art Study Center Seminars give visitors a chance to look closely at original works of art and discuss new research with curators, conservators, fellows, and special guests. Topics, which vary widely, highlight the depth of the Harvard Art Museums collections and the dynamic research interests of our staff.


Since we are unable to welcome you into the museums at this time, we are bringing our experts to you in a new online series, Art Study Center Seminars at Home.


All virtual seminars will be presented live in Zoom. They are free and open to all, but registration is required. Please follow the link in each title below to register. We’ll be in touch to confirm your registration and share a Zoom link and password.

Drawn Together—Conviviality in European Drawings


While drawing is often described as the most intimate medium of art making, artists often take delight in capturing or imagining pleasurable social gatherings and spirited entertainments. In this seminar, Joachim Homann and Margaret Grasselli will examine a selection of European drawings from the 17th to the early 20th century that exemplify companionship and conviviality. They will also discuss how these works reflect, envision, sanction, or deride closeness between people—whether imaginary or well-observed.
