University Connected Learning
This three-session course will expand upon an Osher special event tour Mary Lambert gave at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts about jewelry in art. Using art at the UMFA and select outside sources, Mary will discuss jewels as objects themselves and as depicted in paintings, giving a fuller picture of these extraordinary works. The class will examine jewelry of ancient times, the Middle Ages through 1800, and the Victorian Era to Modernity. Participants will be encouraged to think about the jewelry they wear and how historical perspectives on adornment are also helpful in understanding ourselves.
