Schaefer Talks at MAM

On Thursday, May 12, 2016, Visiting Assistant Professor Sarah C. Schaefer gave a Salon Series talk at the Milwaukee Art Museum.  Schaefer discussed Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s (1732-1806) work, The Shepherdess for both the general public and millions of museum docents. The painting, as Schaefer discussed, is an excellent example of Rococo style and subject matter, which was prominent in France and across Europe in the mid-eighteenth century.
