Sorry for late notice, heard about this on Mond night: 
-------------------------------------------------------Menil-Morgan Lecture with Barbara Rose
The Impact of Medieval Illumination on Modern Drawing 
Tuesday, April 3, 2012, 7:30 p.m.
Independent scholar and curator Barbara Rose is the first Morgan-Menil Fellow at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York. The subject of her talk is the medieval Spanish monk Beatus of Liébana (c. 730 – c. 800) and the influence of his Romanesque illuminated manuscripts of the Apocalypse on modern drawing, specifically on the work of Joan Miró, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso. Rose has served as art editor of The Partisan Review and as contributing editor of Artforum, Vogue, and Art in America. She was chief curator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, from 1981–1985. 
I'm going to try and attend, perhaps some of you will too.  
Cheers, Hillary
