The Blue Tour, with Adam Sella

Adam Sella ’22 explores the color blue through three works of art: a 19th-century Japanese woodblock print by Utagawa Hiroshige (Yamato Province: Yoshino, a Thousand Cherry Trees at One Glance), an early 20th-century painting from Pablo Picasso's blue period (Mother and Child), and an abstract painting from Josef Albers's Homage to the Square series (Against Deep Blue). Taking our Forbes Pigment Collection as a springboard, the tour considers blue’s basis in materials, its history, and its power to stir up emotions.


While there is no virtual tour fee, we will accept donations to the Harvard Art Museums' education fund, which will be used for student-related purposes such as training and enrichment opportunities. Suggested donation of $20. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants prior to the event.
