“Learning to see is the longest apprenticeship of all the arts,” states art historian Alexander Nemerov. With that in mind, Dr. Nemerov urges us to make real-world experiences more legitimate and powerful through the lens of visual art. He will bring that critical lens to his analysis of the work of the philosopher Simone Weil and the artist Giotto di Bondone. Nemerov is the Carl and Marilyn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities, and Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University.
