​Doctoral student Thomas Busciglio-Ritter is currently interning in the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Under the supervision of curator Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser and research associate Shannon Vittoria, he is preparing an upcoming show on French-American painter Jules Tavernier (1844-1889). The exhibition is centered around Tavernier's "Dance in a Subterranean Roundhouse at Clear Lake, California," which the Met acquired for its American collection in 2016. Created in 1878, the painting depicts a Pomo Native ceremony attended by Baron Edmond de Rothschild three years earlier. The exhibition will open in 2021.
