Join curator Joachim Homann for an in-depth discussion of Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s drawing The Girls’ Dormitory, on view in the special exhibition Dare to Know: Prints and Drawings in the Age of Enlightenment.

Featuring approximately 150 works on paper and other related objects, Dare to Know explores how the graphic arts inspired, shaped, and gave immediacy to new ideas in the Enlightenment era by encouraging individuals to follow their own reason when seeking to know more. An illustrated catalogue with 26 thematic essays—an A to Z exploration of the Enlightenment quest for understanding and change—accompanies the exhibition.

Led by:

Joachim Homann, Maida and George Abrams Curator of Drawings, Division of European and American Art
