Event Description:
The Global Student Certificate Program at the Weissman Center for International Business presents a new series of masterclasses in the arts, A Tour of the World in Six Artworks.

This series of 6 masterclasses by art historians will connect world cultures with the fine arts, to see if we can find an alternate way to become globally-accomplished students. For Baruch students who wish to in order to operate at the highest echelons of business and industry, a working knowledge of art history and culture will be indispensable.

The sixth event in the series is given by Vanessa Troiano, PhD candidate in art history at the CUNY Graduate Center. 

“JP Morgan and the Stavelot Triptych: Investing in the Legend of the True Cross”
Nearly 900 years old, the Stavelot Triptych is a jewel-encrusted medieval church reliquary, enshrining purported fragments from the crucifix of Jesus Christ. Today, it is housed in The Morgan Library and Museum of New York City, the former private library of financier J. P. Morgan. Vanessa Troiano, a doctoral candidate in Art History at CUNY’s Graduate Center, will take us on a journey spanning two millennia through Jerusalem, Constantinople, and the Holy Roman Empire, to uncover how such a precious artifact came to reside just blocks away from Baruch’s campus.
