Library Pop-Up: Notes on Art
Take an in-depth look at the notes on artistic techniques and paint recipes found in the margins and flyleaves of a few rare books in our collections.
Science History Institute
Let’s take a closer look at these notes and consider the recording of applied knowledge on art often copied from one book into another or from the scribe’s practice.
About Library Pop-Ups
Library Pop-Ups offer visitors an opportunity to see the books and archives researchers travel around the world to investigate at the Science History Institute. Held in our museum between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. on the second Friday of each month, our librarians and curators from the Othmer Library will share highlights from our collections through fun, theme-oriented activities and programs.
This event is free, and no registration is required. For more information contact Alexis Pedrick at 215.873.8293 or email@example.com.
