Dr. Eric Denker, ’75, head of adult programs at the National Gallery of Art, will offer a 50-minute lecture on the exhibition, followed by the opportunity to view the show.
Paul Cézanne, the renowned post-impressionist artist, is best known today for his revolutionary landscape and still life paintings. However, he also painted almost two hundred portraits, including twenty-six self-portraits and nearly thirty portraits of Madame Cézanne. This exhibition of sixty-four works, drawn from public and private collections, is the first to reveal the extent and depth of Cézanne’s achievement in portraiture. The show has already appeared to great acclaim at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris and at the National Portrait Gallery, London. Register by Wednesday, April 25.
