Louise Smith Bross Lectures

Louise Smith Bross Lectures

Endowed in memory of Louise Smith Bross, PhD 1994, and sponsored by the Department of Art History, the Louise Smith Bross Memorial Fund supports a triennial series of four lectures on any aspect of pre-1800 European art and architecture by a scholar, or scholars, of international reputation. The gift also funds the publication of the lectures by the Chicago University Press. The prestige of the Bross Lectures is reflected in their public visibility: at least the first lecture in each series is delivered at the Art Institute of Chicago, whose generous assistance and collegiality are gratefully acknowledged.
