Circles Presents: Edouard Manet: A Man of his Time
6:00 p.m. – Welcome and opening remarks by Jim Ballinger | 6:15 p.m. – Presentation | 7:00 p.m. – Reception in Great Hall
Speaker: Dr. Pam Hall
Manet is perhaps the most pivotal painter of the 19th century, with one foot grounded in the tradition of the Old Masters, and the other striding towards the revolutionary abstraction begun by Impressionism.
Join us as Dr. Pam Hall discusses Manet's biography, his artistic milieu, and takes an in-depth look at his notorious masterpieces -- demonstrating how Manet lived by his famous dictum, that a painter "must be of one's time and paint what he sees."
Dr. Pamela Hall is currently a professor of Art History and chair of the Art Department at Glendale Community College, where she has taught since 1998. She has also taught Art History courses at the Smithsonian Institution, The American University, the University of Maryland, and Trinity College, and has been a guest lecturer at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
