This single-work exhibition is the second in our occasional series focusing in depth on a painting from the Museum’s permanent collection that is normally not on view. Designed to highlight the many interpretive possibilities an object offers, the installation brings together diverse voices from across campus to create an open and ongoing understanding of Mosler’s turn-of-the-century synthesis of art, history, religion, and gender roles.
