Last month, students had the opportunity to visit both the Frick Collection and the Metropolitan Museum on the Upper East Side as part of their studies.

On April 23rd, Professor Graciela Broitman and her Spanish Honors course visited the Frick to see the exhibit “Coypel’s Don Quixote Tapestries: Illustrating the Spanish Novel in the Eighteen-Century France,” which included five of Coypel’s original paintings, inspired by Cervantes’s Don Quixote, along with tapestry panels and prints.

 

Then, the next day, Professor Shalom Holtz took his First Year Seminar students on a morning trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a tour of the Ancient Near Eastern Art collection. His students gave presentations in the galleries there about the art in the collection.

Both of these trips were great ways for students to learn while engaging with the artwork of New York City, connecting what they learned to the cultural offerings that are so close to Yeshiva University.
