Lust for Life
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Many museum visitors requested a movie about Impressionist Vincent Van Gogh. Outreach Coordinator Laura Bocquin invites you to enjoy the 1956 classic about the artist, Lust for Life, in which Kirk Douglas plays Van Gogh and Anthony Quinn plays Paul Gauguin. While new findings about Van Gogh’s life have surfaced in the over 50 years since the movie was made, the captivating reflections upon the artist’s powerful expressions and struggles for peace, recognition, and relationships remain relevant.  Bocquin will host the brief introduction and follow up discussion.  The Museum will provide complimentary popcorn, and beverages will be available for purchase.

Ekphrasis – A Monthly Book Club About Art (Open Meeting)
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

War & Turpentine: A Novel by Stefan Hertmans

“The life of Urbain Martien—artist, soldier, survivor of World War I—lies contained in two notebooks he left behind when he died in 1981. In War and Turpentine, his grandson, a writer, retells his grandfather’s story, the notebooks providing a key to the locked chambers of Urbain’s memory.

With vivid detail, the grandson recounts a whole life: Urbain as the child of a lowly church painter, retouching his father’s work;dodging death in a foundry; fighting in the war that altered the course of history; marrying the sister of the woman he truly loved; being haunted by an ever-present reminder of the artist he had hoped to be and the soldier he was forced to become.”

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Eye of the Beholder: Johannes Vermeer, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and the Reinvention of Seeing by Laura Snyder

“On a summer day in 1674, in the small Dutch city of Delft, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek―a cloth salesman, local bureaucrat, and self-taught natural philosopher―gazed through a tiny lens set into a brass holder and discovered a never-before imagined world of microscopic life. At the same time, in a nearby attic, the painter Johannes Vermeer was using another optical device, a camera obscura, to experiment with light and create the most luminous pictures ever beheld . . .In Eye of the Beholder, Laura J. Snyder transports us to the streets, inns, and guildhalls of seventeenth-century Holland, where artists and scientists gathered, and to their studios and laboratories, where they mixed paints and prepared canvases, ground and polished lenses, examined and dissected insects and other animals, and invented the modern notion of seeing.”

Art Held Hostage: The Battle Over the Barnes Collection by John Anderson

“This is the story of how a fabled art foundation―the greatest collection of impressionist and postimpressionist art in America, including 69 Cézannes, 60 Matisses, and 44 Picassos, among many priceless others―came to be, and how more than a decade of legal squabbling brought it to the brink of collapse and to a move that many believe betrayed the wishes of the founder, Dr. Albert C. Barnes (1872―1951). Art Held Hostage is now updated with a new epilogue by the author covering the current state of this international treasure and the endless battle over its fate.”

2017 Fleischman Lecture Perpetual Invention: The Printed Work of Frank Stella
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We hope you will join us for the reception, beginning at 5:30 P.M., in honor of Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective and collector Jordan Schnitzer. Afterwards, please stay for a presentation by Dr. Richard H. Axsom, exhibition curator and the author of the catalogue raisonné of Stella’s prints, Frank Stella Prints (2014.)

Axsom will share personal insights about organizing the exhibition and his long association with Frank Stella and his prints.  Axsom will also reveal the joys of working with Stella and affiliated arts professionals, including artist and master printer Kenneth Tyler. Additionally the program will examine Stella’s diverse stylistic explorations and serial working manner of the modern master over his long career.  A book signing of Frank Stella Prints: A Catalogue Raisonné will follow the presentation.

The Fleischman Lecture Series is sponsored by the Carolyn and Winton Blount Endowment in honor of Larry Fleischman a dynamic specialist and leader in the field of American art.  As president of Kennedy Galleries of New York, Fleischman played a role in many innovative ventures, raising international awareness of issues concerning American art. He served as a member of the Fine Arts Advisory Committee of the White House, co-founded the Archives of American Art (now part of the Smithsonian), and founded and published The American Art Journal. During the 1950s, along with his wife, Mr. Fleischman amassed one of the nation’s earliest collections of significant American art.

“A gripping tale of intrigue and mystery in the art world, this film traces the history of the Barnes collection of Post-Impressionist paintings, which was worth billions and became the subject of a power struggle after the 1951 death of the owner.  Dr. Albert Barnes collected 181 Renoirs, 69 Cézannes, 59 Matisses, 46 Picassos and many other valuable paintings.  But the political wrangling over the collection eventually led to its division.” (Netflix)

Georgia: A Novel by Dawn Tripp

In 1916, Georgia O’Keeffe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered O’Keeffe’s work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O’Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz’s sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation.

Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. And soon she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in.

A breathtaking work of the imagination, Georgia is the story of a passionate young woman, her search for love and artistic freedom, the sacrifices she will face, and the bold vision that will make her a legend.

Heretics and Heroes: How Renaissance Artists and Reformation Priests Created Our World by Thomas Cahill

In Volume VI of his acclaimed Hinges of History series, Thomas Cahill guides us through the thrilling period of the Renaissance and the Reformation (the late fourteenth to the early seventeenth century), so full of innovation and cultural change that the Western world would not experience its like again until the twentieth century. Beginning with the continent-wide disaster of the Black Death, Cahill traces the many developments in European thought and experience that served both the new humanism of the Renaissance and the seemingly abrupt religious alterations of the increasingly radical Reformation. This is an age of the most sublime artistic and scientific adventure, but also of newly powerful princes and armies and of newly found courage, as many thousands refuse to bow their heads to the religious pieties of the past.  It is an era of just-discovered continents and previously unknown peoples. More than anything, it is a time of individuality in which a whole culture must achieve a new balance if the West is to continue.
