Lecture by Dr. William Barcham

Realisms

A lecture by Dean Sobel, Director of the Clyfford Still Museum
Friday, February 19, 2016 - 6:00pm7:00pm.

As the exhibition Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio demonstrates, various forms of innovative representational art thrived during this same period and, since the 1960s, have risen to make “realism” a dominant force in recent art. This slide-illustrated discussion presented by Dean Sobel, director of the Clyfford Still Museum, will consider European movements like “New Objectivity” and Surrealism and their responses to abstraction, as well as single figures who stand at the forefront of this parallel development in 20th century art and beyond.
