This lecture is given by the W. Bernard Herman Distinguished Visiting Scholar in Art History and is named after W. Bernard Herman (1911–2011), a graduate from the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall Law School. The W. Bernard Herman Distinguished Visiting Scholar in Art History was established in 2012 and is supported by donations from the Herman family. With it, the Department of Art History is able to bring the finest art history scholars from across the globe to campus for a period of several weeks. While at the University of Toronto, the scholar will teach an intensive course in art, deliver a high-profile public lecture and serve as a resource for faculty and students interested in the scholar's specific area of specialization..
