Lectures and Events
(Yale and New Haven)
VOLTE FACE: THE HEAD IN THE HISTORY OF TASTE: You are cordially invited a lecture to be
delivered by Angus Trumble, Curator of Paintings and
Sculpture at the Yale Center for British Art, on Thursday, December 8, 2005 at
5:00 p.m. at the John Slade Ely House Gallery at 51 Trumbull Street.The lecture to be presented is entitled:
VOLTE FACE: THE HEAD IN THE HISTORY OF TASTE. In the history of European
connoisseurship, changing canons of beauty have determined not just how artists
adorn the human head, but also how they have conceived, shaped, composed the
head itself, and arranged to their evident satisfaction the features of the
face. The process is most dramatically illustrated by the transformation
of the beautiful face in cinema, but it operates in all genres and periods.
Why do "Restoration" beauties all look the same, and what is the
likelihood that future generations will think the same of us?We hope you are able to attend and please
bring your friends and colleagues.

write to bring to your attention the annual application process for the Dolores

awards graduate fellowships in any recognized field of study in the humanities,
social sciences, or natural sciences (including law, medicine, engineering,

graduate and professional students per year. Additional information is
available at http:fdncenter.org/grantmaker/liebmann/index.html.The criteria areoutstanding undergraduate records, financial
need and U.S. citizenship. I have attached the application materials to this
e-mail and ask that you forward any nominations from your respective schools
(i.e., complete applications, including letters of recommendation) by
Wednesday, January 4 to my office (Hall of Graduate Studies, Room 134).
Contrary to the directions on the form, applicants do not need to provide four
copies and should not send the materials directly to the trustees. As
these applications will first be considered by the Office of the Provost, which
will select the three nominations from Yale for the year, the University's
