Object Lessons

Edited by Anna Hammond
Essays by Jeffrey C. Alexander, Timothy Barringer, Karsten Harries, Christine Mehring, and Jessica Stockholder

Object Lessons was conceived as a faculty lectures series organized by Yale University undergraduate students, featuring professors from a variety of humanities-based disciplines across campus. Lectures focused on specific works of art from the Yale University Art Gallery’s collection and were given in the presence of the objects. This publication presents selected lectures from the Object Lessons series on Martin Johnson Heade’s Sudden Shower: Newbury Marshes (ca. 1865–75), Paul Cézanne’s House of Dr. Gachet (1872–73), Alberto Giacometti’s Standing Woman (1956), Robert Morris’s Untitled (Version 1 in 19 Parts) (1968/2002), and Dieter Roth’s Duck Hunt (1971–72).
