Treasures Of Ancient Near Eastern Art: The Paris And Berlin Collections
April 14-24, 1996
We are very pleased to sponsor this museum study program with Oriental Institute Museum Curator Karen L. Wilson. Custom designed for the informed traveler, this program focuses on the major Near Eastern collections in two of the world's great cities, Paris and Berlin.
Karen L. Wilson is well qualified to lead this museum study program. With a Ph.D. in Near Eastern art history and archaeology from New York University and a distinguished career as a museum curator, she will be able to bring her many years of experience to bear on the collections of both the Louvre and the Egyptian Museum-the newly redesigned Near Eastern galleries in the Louvre are home to a copy of our famous winged bull from the palace of Sargon II, and the Egyptian Museum has recently given to the Institute the priceless excavation notebooks from the Oriental Institute operations at Medinet Habu in Egypt in the 1920s.
Space on this program is limited, so I urge you to act quickly to reserve your place. We hope that you will be able to join us.
