Picturing the Story

Learning to Look

Every work of art has a story to tell, either through image and symbol, or through custom and ritual. These stories can explain the unexplainable, teach a life lesson, or celebrate our common human experiences.

Picturing the Story uses works of art as a springboard for an interdisciplinary approach to culture, environment, language, and learning. It was developed for classroom use, using selected narrative works of world art from the permanent collection of the Memorial Art Gallery, but is now available to all.

shown: Fernand Léger, Footed Goblet, 1924 [1946.11]; Chinese, Funerary Urn, 2500-1700 BCE [1999.56]; Charles Looff, Merry-Go-Round Goat, ca. 1900 [1971.40]; Fritz Trautmann, Galaxy, 1942 [1956.65]; Sir Henry Raeburn, Lieutenant-Colonel Hay MacDowell, ca. 1795 (detail) [1968.102]
