About the Event
Each month, members of our Art Team—a group of professional art historians, artists, and educators—present their ongoing research on the collection to members. These 20-minute talks are a great way to learn more about your favorite artists in the collection. After the talks, Art Team members are available to answer questions and exchange ideas.
This September, Michael Williamson provides a closer look at two Picasso paintings—Acrobat and Young Harlequin in Room 19 and Girl with a Goat in Room 23. Learn about Picasso’s skill at incorporating art historical precedents in his works. Williamson will examine how these two important works in the collection, completed during Picasso’s blue and rose periods, show how the artist grappled with neoclassicism.
This event takes place on-site and will begin in Room 19. Registration is required.
