Virtual Student Guide Tour: Mom Matrix, with Sinead Danagher


Thursday, September 30, 2021, 8:00pm to 8:30pm


Harvard Art Museums—Online

Sinead Danagher ’22 will explore the representation of motherhood as seen in three works of art: the wood sculpture Virgin and Child in Majesty [Seat of Divine Wisdom] made in 12th-century France; the erotic Madonna lithograph made by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch in Berlin in 1895; and the woodcut Widow I (1922–23) that Käthe Kollwitz—artist and mother of two sons—made in Berlin after World War I as part of her Krieg (War) portfolio. Danagher will also talk about the common ground between “mother” and the printmaking term “matrix,” two words with the same Latin root.
