Aponovich and Sundstrom will debate the artistic merits and historical context of three masterworks from the Currier Museum of Art’s collection: the recently rediscovered plaster relief by the Florentine sculptor Antonio Rossellino (the piece is dated about 1475); the intimate Self Portrait by Flemish painter Jan Gossaert, who is the subject of an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and an iconic image of the Amoskeag Mills, commissioned by the Currier Museum in 1949 from Charles Sheeler, one of America’s great modernists.
