"Watteau’s Soldiers: Bodies, War, and Enlightenment," by Christy Pichichero, George Mason University

As demonstrated by the current special exhibition, Watteau’s soldiers reveal a paradox: their bodies and minds seem docile, subjugated to military discipline, yet they also relay a vibrant participation in and processing of the experience of war. Discover how this paradox revolutionized military thought during the French Enlightenment and ushered in a new understanding of the costs of war on the human body, mind, and heart.

"Watteau in Time," by Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Harvard University

Jean-Antoine Watteau—whose documentation of soldiers is the focus of the current exhibition—has traditionally been viewed as an artist who found the most eloquent ways to represent his times, whether as a commentator on war, a painter of the elusive culture of the elite class, or the creator of the new conception of the self. This lecture explores the temporal dimensions of his oeuvre while offering an overview of the most significant changes in the understanding of his work.
