Joyce guest speaker at University of Cincinnati School
COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Dr. Beverly Joyce, assistant
professor in the Art and Design Department at
Mississippi University for Women, was the guest speaker
at the University of Cincinnati's School of Art Visiting
Artists and Scholars Lecture Series in May.
The paper, "To the Threshold of the Absolute: The
Philosophical Underpinnings of Edward Burne-Jones's
Art," concentrated on the 19th-century pre-Raphaelite
painter's interest in German idealist and romantic
literary theories as well as the influence of Italian
Renaissance philosophy in his art.
Joyce will present another paper on Burne-Jones at the
annual Southeast College Art Conference in October in
Little Rock, Ark.
