Milwaukee Art Museum school tour

The tour agenda planned for Nov. 11 will highlight paintings and sculptures covering nearly 700 years of Western art. With thousands of art objects to consider, I narrowed the focus to the list provided below. The idea is to feature on one or two works of art per century with the exception of the last two centuries. The tour is organized chronologically in reverse beginning with Wiley’s St. Dionysus, 2006 and concluding with Nardo di Cione’s Madonna and Child, 1350. Below is the planned list of art pieces for Sunday’s tour:
