Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Our objects conservator is working on a Japanese folding screen for the upcoming Masterpieces of Japanese Art exhibition. The screen has delicate bamboo shades set into the cart doors shown in each of its six panels. Over time some of the shades have warped and detached from their frames. The folding screen’s frame is also showing signs of wear. The lacquer is flaking and there are numerous rubs and chips in the surface. The objects conservator is working to clean and flatten the bamboo screens to fit them back into the panels and she is consolidating (applying adhesive) and inpainting losses in the lacquer frame. The painted portion of the screen will be a project for our paper conservator. You will be able to see this screen conserved and on display next year in the “Masterpieces of Japanese Art” from February 14th to August 30th 2015. 4 hour ago via Facebook

Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince: Celebrating 500 Years of a Unique and Dangerous Genius

December 10, 2013 - 05:00 pm to 08:30 pm

5 – 6 p.m. reception, 6 – 8:30 p.m. talk

 

With Professor William J. Connell, La Motta Chair of Italian History, Seton Hall; Dr. William J. Landon, Acting Chair, Department of History and Geography, Northern Kentucky University; Professor Richard Mackenney, Department of History, SUNY Binghamton; Professor Massimo Ciavolella, Director, Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, UCLA

Very few works in the canon of western political literature can compare with the brilliant intensity of Machiavelli’s little work that we know as The Prince; and none can compare with its infamy. Moreover, Machiavelli’s name has been used an adjective (Machiavellian) to describe the machinations of deceitful politicians at least since the time of Shakespeare.

Join Professors Connell, Landon, Mackenney and Ciavolella for the only event of its kind being hosted in North America. These internationally recognized scholars will reflect on The Prince’s inception, its influence and its reception exactly 500 years after Machiavelli first mentioned his treatise in private correspondence.

FREE. Reservations not required. Parking $4.00, FREE for Art Museum Members.

 

Presented by The Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement, The Office of the President, Provost and Dean of Arts and Sciences at Northern Kentucky University, and the generous support of the following Departments: History and Geography; Political Science; Sociology, Anthropology and Philosophy; English; and World Languages and Literatures.
