Small Treasures: From Idea to Exhibition

April 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In his richly illustrated lecture, Dennis P. Weller, Ph.D. will explore the many factors involved in bringing Small Treasures: Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, and Their Contemporaries to reality. Results from his research tell us why so many small-scale figure paintings by Dutch and Flemish masters were produced during the seventeenth century, who painted them, and how they may have functioned. Ultimately, his work led to a not-so-simple question: “how small is small?”.

Curator of Northern European Art at the North Carolina Museum of Art since 1995, Weller has also served as an adjunct Professor of Art History at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 1992. Before coming to Raleigh, he spent five years working at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, followed by a year at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as a post-doctoral fellow. Weller has lectured and written extensively on Dutch and Flemish art in various exhibition catalogs and publications, with recent articles and reviews appearing in Apollo, Master Drawings, and The Burlington Magazine.
