'Pictures of Meat' Lecture to Focus on Man's Relationship with Animals

Rehm Library

College of the Holy Cross
Worcester, MA 01610
USA

International Visiting Kraft-Hiatt Fellow Dror Burstein, teaches Hebrew literature at Hebrew University and Tel Aviv University in Israel and was awarded the Jerusalem Prize for Literature. In this illustrated lecture, he will share his current work highlighting paintings in which the death of the animals depicted may be seen as an outrage - and therefore observing the picture is outrageous, too - as well as paintings in which the possibility of co-existence and even harmony between man and animal is imaginable. Among the artists presented will be Goya, Doré and Bada Shanren.
