On March 1, 2019, Nicola Suthor, Professor in the History of Art at Yale University and Member (2011) in the School of Historical Studies, gave a public lecture titled "Fluidity and Sedimentation in Rembrandt’s Christ Carrying the Cross" as part of the Art History lecture series.

Yve-Alain Bois, Professor in the School, introduced Suthor, who spoke on how extremely minimal lineation may in fact condition the artist’s invention within the medium as the sketch develops.
