What do we see when we look at historic paintings? A painter and a scholar share how their encounters with paintings of the past reflect and inform their perspectives on the present.

Artist Elise Ansel and Hanétha Vété-Congolo, associate professor of Romance languages and literatures, discuss these questions. Moderated by Joachim Homann, curator, Bowdoin College Museum of Art

Organized in conjunction with the exhibition, Elise Ansel: Distant Mirrors at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.
