Join art historian Stacey Epstein for the presentation Alfred Maurer: An Artist’s Journey as she introduces the work of American artist Alfred Maurer, whose career spanned the divide between the 19th and 20th centuries.
Her talk will explore the complex breadth of Maurer’s work, from his elegant turn-of-the-century figure studies to the highly innovative and experimental works of his later years. It will examine his role as an American avant-garde artist living and working in France at the dawn of the 20th century, while also charting his artistic evolution back in America from 1914-1932.
Maurer’s work will be on view in Paper Dreams: Alfred Mauer and American Masterpieces.
