How could an educated Bostonian have purchased an original Raphael in 1866? For this Museum Current lecture, which focuses on recent scholarship, discoveries, and trends in Museum Studies, the McMullen Museum invites Boston College History of Art Professor and Chair of the Art, Art History, and Film Department Stephanie Leone to present her archival research and use of anthropologist Igor Kopytoff’s “biography of things” theory to reconstruct the history of the McMullen’s "Madonna and Child with St. John the Baptist." The lecture will chart the painting’s creation in mid- to late eighteenth-century Verona by Giuseppe or Giambettino Cignaroli to its new cultural “status” as a Raphael masterpiece in the nineteenth century, its deattribution to Raphael at the end of that century, and finally its donation to Boston College in 1939.
