Marcia Eaton's Art and Language
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

Marcia Eaton, Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota

To fully understand and appreciate a literary work, one must know the language in which it is written. Is there anything comparable to a language that must be learned to understand and appreciate painting, music or dance?

This presentation is part of Marcia Eaton's Art and Language lecture series.

Languages of Art  This lecture is part of Artis—Naples' 2017-18 season theme, Languages of Art.
