Virtual Student Guide Tour: Making Faces, with Cecilia Zhou


Wednesday, June 2, 2021, 11:00am to 11:30am


Harvard Art Museums—Online

Student Guide Cecilia Zhou’s art-inspired makeup tutorials have appeared on the social media channels of the Harvard Art Museums and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In this tour, she will spend time with three paintings that inspired her: the 20th-century Head of a Woman by Russian Expressionist Alexei von Jawlensky, the 3rd-century Egyptian Mummy Portrait of a Woman, and the 18th-century portrait of the marquise de Pompadour by French artist François Boucher. She will focus on the role of the face in defining identity and how differently it’s treated in these works.
