Barbara Wisch

Barbara Wisch, professor emerita of art history, was invited to serve as the consulting curator for the exhibition “Shared Treasure: The Legacy of Samuel H. Kress,” held at the Allentown (Pa.) Art Museum from Oct. 16, 2011-Jan. 15, 2012. The exhibition celebrated the 50th anniversary of the generous Kress gift of Renaissance and Baroque paintings to the Allentown Art Museum. “Shared Treasure” brought together more than 30 exceptional paintings, borrowed from other recipients of the Kress legacy. These works span the European continent from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment. Wisch provided all the wall texts and contributed to the brochure.
