Visitors can step back in time to 18th-century France at the annual Rosenberg Fête celebrating French painting and sculpture from the Michael L. Rosenberg Collection.

Dr. Aaron Wile, Associate Curator of French Paintings at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, presents "Enlightened Inspiration: Inventing Genius in the First Age of Celebrity." Focusing on François André Vincent’s Portrait of Pierre-Jean-Baptiste Choudard (called Desforges), among other works in the Michael L. Rosenberg Collection, this talk explores how the question "What does genius look like?" took on new urgency in the 18th century.

Wile is Associate Curator of French Paintings at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. A specialist in 17th- and 18th-century French art, he earned his MA and PhD in the History of Art and Architecture from Harvard University and has held fellowships from the Centre allemand d’histoire de l’art, the Frick Collection, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the USC Society of Fellows in the Humanities.
