Seventh Annual Master Drawings Symposium

Watch the video recording of our Seventh Annual Master Drawings Journal Symposium, Bright Ideas: New Discoveries By Recent Ricciardi Prize Winners which includes two fascinating live presentations. Alexander McCargar (winner, 2022) uses his expertise in stage design to discuss the originality of eighteenth-century Italian scenographer Pietro Righini, whose work has long been confused with that of the renowned Bibiena family. Thea Goldring (winner, 2023) reveals her discovery of two previously unknown caches of over 100 natural history drawings by the eighteenth-century French draftsman Carême de Fécamp, placing them in context of developments in art and science during the Enlightenment.
