Claude Monet’s World: Seen and Emulated, by Urvashi Uberoy ’20

  I dipped my brush into my water jar and then swirled it in a patch of vibrant green. I swished it across my canvas, applying a quick base coat. And then I looked up, snapped out of my trance, and remembered where I was. From where I was sitting, I could see a quaint Read more about Claude Monet’s World: Seen and Emulated, by Urvashi Uberoy ’20[…]

Art and Accessibility: Mariah McVey ’20 Shares a PUAM Experience

Perhaps my favorite moment in the Princeton University Art Museum unraveled in front of “The Death of Socrates,” a piece by Jacques-Louis David and his studio. A calling card of the European Art (17th-18th Centuries) gallery, the intentionally unfinished chef-d’œuvre, at least according to scholar Thomas Crow, served as a teaching tool.   In a Read more about Art and Accessibility: Mariah McVey ’20 Shares a PUAM Experience[…]
