Thursday, November 19, 12:00pm - 12:45pm (CST)

“The least lion-looking Leo I have ever seen!”

Historical depictions of constellations representing animals and mythical creatures often strike the viewer with their fanciful and intriguing appearance. Where do such renditions come from, and how do they relate to knowledge about animals and their portrayal in art? Join us for a conversation with Dr. Suzanne Karr-Schmidt on art, astronomy, animals, and print culture in the Renaissance, and get a glimpse into some of the most remarkable star charts, celestial globes, and prints in the collections of both the Adler Planetarium and the Newberry Library.
