Garden and Landscape Studies Colloquium: Hubert Robert and French Garden Culture

The Garden and Landscape Studies annual fall colloquium is a collaboration between Dumbarton Oaks and the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA) at the National Gallery of Art. In conjunction with the exhibition Hubert Robert, 1733–1808, on view at the National Gallery of Art from June 26 to October 2, 2016, Dumbarton Oaks will host a one-day colloquium in the Oak Room of the Fellowship House, 1700 Wisconsin Avenue NW. The colloquium will include a series of presentations on Robert’s work and its artistic and cultural contexts. We are particularly interested in highlighting Robert’s contributions to landscape architecture and garden design in the second half of the eighteenth century, important aspects of his activities that are often overlooked in discussions of his other artistic output.

Please note there are limited seats available. Registration by September 15 is required and is first come, first served.
