Dr. Jenny McComas, Curator of European and American Art
Join us to learn more about provenance of works in the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s collection. Dr. Jenny McComas, Curator of European and American Art, will lead a tour of paintings she has researched as part of the museum’s World War II-era Provenance Research Project. Learn about the collectors, patrons, and art dealers who owned these works in prewar Europe, the steps they took to protect their collections from Nazi art looting, and how the works ultimately made their way to Indiana University.
