Much of our knowledge of the pre-Roman Etruscan civilization comes from their tombs. Music, dancing, feasting: All were featured in their funerary art. The famous Sarcophagus of the Spouses, for example, shows a couple sharing a banqueting couch.
Join us for a close-up look at these fascinating ritual objects in “Dining and Dancing: Etruscan Funeral Art” with art historian Rebecca Albiani. The lecture will be held Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
Albiani’s lectures are lively and informative, offering a snappy combo of facts and witty observations that delight audiences. For two decades, she has given an immensely popular 10-part lecture series at the Frye Art Museum. She also lectures at the Women’s University Club, Vashon Island Arts and the Creative Retirement Institute at Edmonds Community College.
Albiani has a dual major from UC Berkeley and spent her junior year abroad in Venice. She earned a master’s in art history at Stanford and entered the doctoral program there. After a fellowship at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., she spent a second year in Venice as a Fulbright scholar.
