Janet Mandel, retired art history educator, will present lectures on four American artists who transformed the world of art in the 20th century. Florine Stettheimer chronicled the life of the Jazz age in New York portraying subjects considered controversial even today such as race, orientation, gender, and religion. Norman Rockwell’s work was emblematic of ordinary moments of everyday life in America. Georgia O’Keeffe gave images of audacious flowers, dramatic cityscapes, glowing landscapes, and haunting depictions of bones against a stark desert sky. Andy Warhol revolutionized how we look at the relationship between artistic expression and celebrity culture.
All lectures start at 11 am. You may sign up for one or all classes or call the library at 973-635-0603. A fee of $40 will be charged for all classes or $10 per individual class.
