On May 05, 2016 Anne and Frank Goodyear, co-directors of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, welcomed Museum members and their guests to a special presentation of recent acquisitions. After gathering in the Pavilion for an initial welcome and refreshments, the Museum members first went to the Zuckert Seminar Room for an unveiling of European drawings by French artist Jean-Michel Moreau le Jeune and English artist Edward Lear. Several modern and contemporary works were also shown, including vintage photographs by the American photographers Weegee and Peter Hujar, a series of recent prints by English artist Chris Ofili, and a new video work by South African artist William Kentridge. The members then went to the upper level of the building, where the Museum's newest work of ancient art awaited them in the Rotunda. An Egyptian Fayum mummy portrait from the second century CE was acquired at auction in the Fall of 2015. James Higginbotham, the Museum's associate curator for the ancient collection, unveiled this rare and spectacular portrait and spoke about its importance in the study of Egyptian art and culture.
