TWENTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL HILLA REBAY LECTURE: HOLLIS CLAYSON



“Episodes from the Visual Culture of Electric Paris”


Tuesday, January 27th, 2015            6:30 pm




Hollis Clayson’s analysis of the visual culture of Paris takes root in the often overlooked fact that lighting (
├ęclairage) was a key attribute of the City of Light in the 19th century.



Clayson maintains that the forms of artificial illumination, their visual properties, and the era’s debates about them provided circumstances that stimulated aesthetically innovative art.




The lecture analyzes the work of John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, and Mary Cassatt, and several of the era’s leading caricaturists.




FREE event. No advance ticket registration required. Doors open at 6 pm.



A reception follows the talk.
