Art Lovers Book Club: The Art of Rivalry by Sebastian Smee
The Art of Rivalry by Sebastian Smee
A famous portrait of Francis Bacon brazenly stolen off a museum wall. Manet stabbing through an image of his wife painted for him by Degas. Lucian Freud declining a wedding invitation because he found himself “in the unusual position of having been involved sexually not only with the bride but also the groom and the groom’s mother.”
Art Lovers Book Club is held at the Lemon Art Research Library. Space is extremely limited, RSVP required.
Participants must read the book in advance. Please inform firstname.lastname@example.org of any cancellations.
