Rescheduled - An evening with Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen  at The Williams Bookstore

Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen will present and discuss her new book Modern Art and the Remaking of Human Disposition. Exploring major works by Georges Seurat, Gustav Klimt, and the dancer and choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky— replete with new archival discoveries—Modern Art and the Remaking of Human Disposition combines intensive formal analysis with inquiries into the history of psychology and evolutionary biology. In doing so, it shows how modern understandings of human consciousness and the relation of mind to body were materialized in art through a new vocabulary of postures and poses. Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen is the associate director of the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art at the Clark Art Institute. Books will be available for sale and signing after the talk. This event is free and open to the public.
