Lecture focuses on Paris photos

Meredith Clausen, professor of art history and architecture, will present a lecture at the Henry Art Gallery Aug. 18. Paris Disparu: Photos of a Bygone City is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 18, in the Henry’s auditorium.

The 19th century transformation of Paris from medieval city to modern metropolis was recorded by the then new technology of photography. Clausen will discuss photos from the Henry’s The Old Paris Is No More exhibit.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
