Gardner Lectures in Fogg at 4.30
Professor Earnest Arthur Gardner Litt.D., Lieutenant-Commander in the British Navy and archaeological expert, will deliver the Charles Eliot Norton Memorial lecture in the Fogg Art Museum this afternoon at 4.30 o'clock. His subject is "Loss and Recovery of Greek Sculpture," and the lecture will be open to the public. Professor Gardner is Yates Professor of Archaeology in University College, London University, and is the author of several works on Greek Art.
The lecture will treat several aspects of Greek sculpture; the sculpture in its original surroundings, the danger from admiration and pillage, its occidental and intentional preservation, the history of its discovery, its use for decoration or display and later for historical study, the re-discovery of Greece, the ethics of removal and restoration, and possibilities for the future.
