Each month, Rienzi highlights a great work of art in its collection. Gallery Talks are presented by curators, conservators and librarians.

Dena Woodall, associate curator of prints and drawings, will discuss three period prints from the MFAH collection currently on view in Rienzi's exhibition, Comfort and the Eighteenth-Century Interior. She will explain how these images of novel styles of upholstered furniture or women in luxurious new forms of dress became a primary method for popularizing the latest trends and styles in 18th-century France and England.
