Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.

Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.

The Legacy of Art and the Nazis Before and After the Holocaust

March 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join SHARE for its final evening of the 2024 Conference, for which we are excited to present University of Michigan History of Art Professor Shelley Perlove. Professor Perlove specializes in Italian and Dutch art of the seventeenth century. Her scholarly interests include art and religious culture in early modern Europe, the Hebrew Bible, material culture, and the visual arts, and visual typology in sixteenth-century art.

Professor Perlove will be speaking on the legacy of art during the Holocaust, how it was weaponized by the Nazis both metaphorically and literally, looking at cases of Nazi-looted art and efforts to retrieve them. Time for Q&A and a reception will follow her presentation.

Shelley Perlove is the author of two award-winning books published by Penn State University Press: Bernini and the Idealization of Death, and more recently with Larry Silver, Rembrandt’s Faith: Church and Temple in the Dutch Golden Age. She has written more than thirty articles, essays and reviews appearing in such journals as Burlington Magazine, Gazette des Beaux Arts, and Artibus et Historiae and has curated five exhibitions devoted to early modern prints. Most recently she served as consultant to the exhibition, “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus,” which opened at the Louvre. Her current book project investigates the religious works of Rembrandt’s Dutch followers.

Location: University of Michigan Hillel (1429 Hill Street)
