CALL Lectures—Four American Original Artists of the 20th Century

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.

A Rodin in Madison: Discovery of a Masterpiece

Mallory Mortillaro, curator at the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, will discuss her discovery of a marble bust of Napoleon Bonaparte by Auguste Rodin.  The sculpture, entitled Napoléon enveloppé dans son rêve, or Napoleon Wrapped in His Dream, is part of the art collection that once belonged to Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge. It has been in the Madison town hall since 1942 when Mrs. Dodge donated the Hartley Dodge Memorial Building to the borough of Madison in honor of her late son, Marcellus Hartley Dodge Jr.  Ms. Mortillaro will discuss her discovery from speculation to authentication and the impact it had on her as an art historian, a teacher, and a person.

Please join us on Tuesday, May 14 at 7 pm.  Pre-registration is requested.  You may sign up online or call the library at 973-635-0603.
