Arthur Schnitzler and Vienna 1900
Sunday, September 9, 2012
4:00–7:30 p.m.
Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center

Arthur Schnitzler—Being Jewish, a staged reading based on Schnitzler's journals and correspondence, focuses on the renowned and controversial Austrian writer's conflicted feelings about his Jewish identity. After the performance, a panel discussion situates Schnitzler and his contemporaries, including Gustav Klimt, in the cultural and political context of 19th- and early-20th-century Vienna.

Morey Architectural Sketchbook

Discourse on Sacred and Profane Images

Cardinal Gabriele Paleotti's remarkable 16th-century treatise, translated into English for the first time, was written during an era when the Church feared rampant abuse in the arts. Paleotti, who was the archbishop of Bologna, explains the painter's responsibility to those who view his work and argues that art should serve a higher purpose and address a broad audience.
