ONLINE: A Munch Mystery with Jane Becker Nelson
May 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Mindekirken on May 25 at 11 a.m. CT for their Tuesday Open House virtual presentation by Jane Becker Nelson.
In October 2018, Becker Nelson initiated scientific analysis of an unattributed portrait of the violinist Eva Mudocci, believed to be by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. Coinciding with the publication of Rima Shore’s Lady with a Brooch: Violinist Eva Mudocci, the inquiry garnered international attention, culminating in Becker Nelson’s visit to Oslo’s Munchmuseet to meet with leading Munch scholars and curators. To learn more about the early stages of the inquiry, read A Munch Mystery, and visit Flaten Art Museum’s website.
Becker Nelson is Director and Curator of the Flaten Art Museum at St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minn., where she oversees the museum’s collections and exhibitions and serves as a specialist in and advocate for visual teaching and learning. Becker Nelson has worked in museums and galleries across the U.S. and Canada, serving as curator, educator, gallery manager, and fundraiser at institutions including the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Walker Art Center, Groveland Gallery, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Seattle Art Museum, and Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Ontario. Becker Nelson holds a BA in studio art and art history from St. Olaf College and an MA in art history from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.
