Description
Shown here are Amber Orosco '19 (left) and Ben Wu '18, both of whom are Andrew W. Mellon Mays Fellows for summer 2017. They are worked with Associate Professor of Art History Susan Wegner and Anne Collins Goodyear, co-director of the Museum, on research related to the Molinari portrait medal collection. During the Renaissance artists created portrait medals as a way of glorifying individuals, just as Roman emperors had once done. The Molinari Collection is one of the largest collections of these works in the United States. Amber and Ben researched the collection and have worked with the Museum staff to create digital images of the medals, which eventually will become an online catalog available to the public. An interesting part of their research has involved the use of the scanning electron microscope in Bowdoin's Earth and Oceanographic Department to analyze the metallurgical components of the medals themselves. In this image Amber and Ben were meeting with Amber Ng, a curator and specialist in Renaissance art at The Frick Collection in New York City.
