National Gallery of Art: podcasts

Fifty-Eighth A. W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts
Over the last couple months, art historian T.J. Clark has presented a series of lectures at the National Gallery of Art, as part of the prestigious A.W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts. Titled collectively “Picasso and Truth,” the six lectures each take on Picasso’s career in the 1920s and 30s: a curious period between the so-called retour à l’ordre of the early 20s and his painting of Guernica in 1937.

T. J. Clark, George C. and Helen N. Pardee Chair and professor of history of art, University of California, Berkeley is the author of numerous books, including "The Painting of Modern Life, Paris in the art of Manet and his followers."
