Virtual Student Guide Tour: Painting’s Punchlines, with Sophia Clark


Thursday, April 7, 2022, 8:00pm to 8:30pm


Harvard Art Museums—Online

In this tour, Sophia Clark ’23 explores the varied means and ends of humor in three works of art that, at first glance, may not seem funny. They are Mervin Jules’s 1937 painting The Art Lover; Charles Bird King’s 1830 painting The Vanity of the Artist’s Dream; and the Archaic Greek Eye cup: Athena (c. 530 BCE), which gives drinkers a different face when they tilt the cup toward them.
