  • Rembrandt Vs Vermeer: The Titans of Dutch Painting
    Intelligence Squared

    (For a list of all paintings referenced by Simon Schama and Tracy Chevalier in this debate please go to: Rembrandt van Rijn is the best known of all the Dutch masters. His range was vast, from landscapes to portraits to Biblical scenes; he revolutionised every medium he handled, from oil paintings to etchings and drawings. His vision encompassed every element of life – the sleeping lion; the pissing baby; the lacerated soles of the returned prodigal son. Making the case for him in this debate was Simon Schama. For him Rembrandt is humanity unedited: rough, raw, violent, manic, vain, greedy and manipulative. Formal beauty was the least of his concerns, argues Schama, yet he attains beauty through his understanding of the human condition, including to be sure, his own. But for novelist Tracy Chevalier it can all get a little exhausting. Rembrandt’s paintings, she believes – even those that are not his celebrated self-portraits – are all about himself. Championing Vermeer, she will claim that his charm lies in the very fact that he absents himself from his paintings. As a result they are less didactic and more magical than Rembrandt’s, giving the viewer room to breathe. The debate was chaired by art historian , broadcaster and Director of Artistic Programmes at the Royal Academy Tim Marlow.

  • The Art of the Harpsichord: Music and Painting
    National Gallery of Art

    Christine Laloue, chief curator of harpsichords and fine arts, and Jean-Philippe Echard, curator of bowed string instruments, Musée de la musique, Cité de la musique-Philharmonie de Paris The harpsichord, standing at the center of baroque European culture, served not only as a musical instrument but also as a receptacle of painting. Collections in townhouses and mansions from Venice to London and Antwerp to Paris included, alongside traditional easel paintings, harpsichords bearing works by masters as renowned as Jan Brueghel, Annibale Carracci, Noël Coypel, Christophe Huet, or Sebastiano Ricci. The paintings on harpsichords’ soundboards featured flowers, birds, and insects, connecting these works to Flemish still-life paintings and the celebration of creation. Others presented allegorical, mythological, or vanitas scenes on their lids. In traditional paintings, the harpsichord functioned as a sign of the culture of the gentleman and life at the court, as well as a symbol of artistic inspiration. The harpsichord was indeed a total work of art and an emblem of harmony, but it was swept away by the historical breaks at the turn of the 19th century, leaving only sweet but anecdotal memories in our imagination. In this lecture held on April 6, 2018, at the National Gallery of Art, Christine Laloue and Jean-Philippe Echard propose, using the example of the harpsichord, an interpretation of the strong links between painting and music in the aesthetics of 16th- through 18th-century Europe.

  • Discussing "Lysistrata" and Politics with Lucy and Emily (Part One)
    Partially Examined Life

    We are rejoined by actresses Lucy Lawless and Emily Perkins to discuss Aristophanes's bawdy play. Listen to us perform it first. Supplementary readings included Jeffery Henderson's introduction to his 1988 translation of the play; "Sexual Humor and Harmony in Lysistrata" by Jay M. Semel (1981); and "The 'Female Intruder' Reconsidered: Women in Aristophanes' Lysistrata and Ecclesiazusae" by Helene P. Foley (1982). We discuss the play in terms of a clash between the oikos (home) and polis (city). Women were taken to have rights and responsibilities in the oikos, but none in the polis. Unlike in tragedies like Antigone, where the female lead adopts assertive, "male" traits to "intrude" into the polis, Lysistrata exerts political power by making use of oikos values, i.e., by encouraging women to use the the type of power traditionally associated with women, and so ultimately her "revolution" is not revolutionary at all. We explore the various feminist and anti-feminist elements in the play, and try to relate it to the present: Women were oppressed because sex was (and is!) seen as inherently dangerous, as disruptive to political life. Can "make love, not war" be a politically effective slogan now? Given that women are now much less restricted to particular roles, what do we make of claims that are still made now that if women ran things, we'd have a lot less war? What would it be for a woman in politics now to exert her "feminine attributes" to gain power in the way Lysistrata does? Given how messed up Ancient Greek society was, does this play have anything to teach us?

  • The Limits of Free Speech (Part Two)
    Partially Examined Life

    Continuing our free-form discussion, trying to make sense of Stanley Fish's “There’s No Such Thing as Free Speech, and It’s a Good Thing, Too” (1994) and other potential rationales for prohibiting hate speech. How might the same sentence or idea be used in different speech acts, some of which might be legitimately censured but others not? Also, given the legal right to express an opinion, what responsibility might we have to facilitate expression of opinions, given that if no one gives it a hearing, then there's no real right to communication at all?
