TPS Lecture Series: Industry and Invention: Art and Science in Nineteenth‐Century Europe

March 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

New technologies and scientific discoveries changed the way European artists worked in the 1800s. Breakthroughs in chemistry brought new colors into painting studios and ceramic workshops, while innovative materials and manufacturing techniques encouraged designers to create new kinds of useful—yet artistic—goods. Join PMA Assistant Curators Tara Contractor and Colin Fanning as they explore these intersections of art and science through the lens of the museum’s collection, and discuss how contemporary science can help us better understand the innovations of the past.
