WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Saturday, March 2 at 2 pm, the Clark Art Institute hosts a free lecture by art critic Susan Tallman titled "Without Prints You Don't Understand the Culture of the World." 
This lecture is presented in the Clark's auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
According to a press release:
Looked at narrowly, prints may be a niche topic in art history, but for more than 500 years they have also been the lifeblood of the circulatory system of visual art. The title of Tallman's lecture comes from the late art historian Leo Steinberg's observations about a seventeenth-century Mughal painting based on an Italian engraving. Tallman offers a primer on what is distinctive about prints as material objects and investigates how those material qualities lead to distinctive ways of looking at and thinking about pictures.
Free. Accessible seats available; for information, call 413 458 0524.
