Wayne G. Hammond & Christina Scull
J.R.R. Tolkien’s paintings and drawings offer important insights into the “matter of Middle-earth” and the life of its creator. Join leading Tolkien scholars Wayne G. Hammond, Chapin Librarian at Williams College, Williamstown, Massachusetts, and Christina Scull, former Librarian of Sir John Soane’s Museum, London, as they examine how Tolkien’s writings and art influenced each other, and how other artists have interpreted Tolkien’s works, especially his favorite illustrator, Pauline Baynes.
The exhibition Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth will be open at 5:30 PM for program attendees.
