Fools and Folly in Flemish Art

When Flemish art turned its gaze toward worldly behavior in the 16th and 17th centuries, printmakers and painters alike were quick to realize how often humanity acts foolishly, especially in love. Flemish artists on view in Saints, Sinners, Lovers, and Fools represent fools individually in the costume of court jesters, but also misbehaving in their pleasurable excesses: gluttony, drinking, and sex.

This talk, led by Larry Silver, James & Nan Wagner Farquhar Professor Emeritus of History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania, will offer sample images from both the exhibition and the DAM's other collections, by both famous and less familiar artists, to display that human folly--for purposes of moral instruction, but, more often, to provoke outright laughter at the peccadillos.
