Hi Neil and  Beauvais,

Thanks for letting us know about your use of the prints with your class—so interesting.  I note that the label information I sent is just an example. There are prints from the “Temple of Flora” series, an image of Linnaeus in his Lapland garb, and more from different print makers and different time periods.  

In addition, Jeff is holding more (~100) unframed prints for our use in McClung.  The museum has a classroom set up for viewing objects (i.e. more prints) that you may be interested in using for your class.

Best,
Susan

Thanks Susan ... I have enough of the provenance on the prints now to get started .. The Art & Organism seminar will most likely observe the prints & connect them to principles of E.H. Gombrich’s Art and Illusion, particularly the intersection of descriptions of nature and cultural/aesthetic traditions.  This will hopefully fold into our theme of biological and cultural influences on cognitive functions in the creation and appreciation of aesthetic objects, not least novelties in nature. 

I’ll also get in touch with Jeff Chapman to see if he can add something to this stew we’re cooking up.  Also Beauvais Lyons, a long-time colleague and supporter of the A&O vision, as well as an extraordinary printmaker himself.

Cheers, Neil

Hi Neil,

Can you please describe how your class will use the prints to Jeff Chapman, director of the McClung Museum?  The donor, Graham Arader, loves to know that they are being used by students.

Also, please take photos of students in action for our web page and 2016 news letter!

Thanks so much,
Susan

Can you tell me more about Neil’s class.  I would like to pass it on to Graham Arader.
Thanks, Jeff

Hi Neil,

A picture of a label is attached to this message.  The donor’s name is on the card below. So excited that you are using these beautiful prints in your class!
