The Berlin Painter was the name given by Sir John Davidson Beazley (1885–1970) to an otherwise anonymous Athenian vase-painter, active in the first quarter of the fifth century B.C., whose hand he recognized in nearly 300 complete and fragmentary vases in public and private collections around the world. Since Beazley’s first published identification of the Berlin Painter in 1911, the oeuvre of this still-anonymous Athenian draughtsman has grown to some 330 works, and esteem for his elegant, approachable style has never lessened. This exhibition will feature 84 vessels and statuettes of the early fifth century, including 54 of the finest vases attributed to the Berlin Painter, representing a full range of subjects, sacred and profane. Collectively these works open a window into a world 2,500 years distant and remind us of the enduring importance of archaeology and of sustained visual analysis. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

Behavioral Policy Speaker Series: Cecilia Mo, "When do the Advantaged See the Disadvantages of Others? A Quasi-Experimental Study of National Service"
Thu, May 4, 2017, 4:30 pm
Are there mechanisms by which the "haves" can see the perspective of the "have nots"? If advantaged individuals have prolonged engagement with disadvantaged populations and confront issues of inequality through national service, do they see the world more through the lens of the poor? Mo explores this question by examining Teach For America, a prominent national service program that integrates top college graduates into low-income communities for two years.
