In this richly illustrated lecture, Walter Cahn, Carnegie Professor of the History of Art (emeritus), Yale University, explores the imagery and views of the hereafter in our own time. Largely a product of the Middle Ages, these depictions surprisingly share the pages of The New Yorker with more familiar satires on the foibles of doctors, lawyers, and twenty-somethings, among other hilarious subjects. Presented in cooperation with the International Center of Medieval Art (ICMA). The exhibition “On the Money: Cartoons for The New Yorker” will be open at 5:30 pm especially for lecture attendees. Tickets are $15 for Non-members, $10 for Morgan and ICMA Members. (palimpsestuous)
