Curator of Academic Programs Liliana Milkova gives a talk on the self-portrait by Flemish artist Michiel Sweerts in the AMAM collection. Learn about the meanings of the oil pigments used, especially lead-white. 

Despite its known toxicity, lead reigned supreme in art-making until the 20th century and Milkova argues that Sweerts’s portrayal activates a different kind of sight that elevates the status of the artist and artistic creation as a whole.
