Episode No. 523 features curators Anne T. Woollett and Shannon Vittoria.

With Austėja Mackelaitė and John T. McQuillen, Woollett is a co-curator of "Hans Holbein: Capturing Character in the Renaissance" at the J. Paul Getty Museum through January 9, 2022. The exhibition presents Hans Holbein the Younger as German but transnational, and situates his portraiture between not only influential court figures, but the leading intellectuals of contemporary Switzerland and England.

Remarkably, it is the first major Holbein exhibition in the US. Co-organized with the Morgan Library & Museum, New York, "Holbein" features over 50 objects including 33 Holbein paintings and drawings.

Along with Elizabeth Kornhauser, Vittoria is the co-curator of "Jules Tavernier and the Elem Pomo." Vittoria wrote the essay on the Elem Pomo work included in the exhibition for The Met Bulletin that functions as the show's catalogue. It's at the Met through November 28.
