Victors For Art: Michigan’s Alumni Collectors—Part I: Figuration encompasses works of art representing various artistic styles, historical contexts, temporal periods, and geographical spheres. Go behind the scenes with Lehti Mairike Keelmann, UMMA’s Assistant Curator of Western Art, to discover how artists such as Alfred Sisley, Tom Friedman, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Jan Saenredam, Andy Warhol, and Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, among others, interpret and challenge established categories of art and subject matter through their choice of technique and social commentary. Keelmann will also discuss how curators approached the installation and layout of these disparate works.
