Curator Tour, The Logic of the Copy: Four Decades of Photography in Print

Dec 6, 2017, 6:30pm
Exhibition curator Andrew Kensett will lead a tour of The Logic of the Copy: Four Decades of Photography in Print.

The Last Painting of Sara de Vos by Dominic Smith "Written in prose so clear that we absorb its images as if by mind meld, The Last Painting is gorgeous storytelling: wry, playful, and utterly alive, with an almost tactile awareness of the emotional contours of the human heart. Vividly detailed, acutely sensitive to stratifications of gender and class, it's fiction that keeps you up at night ― first because you're barreling through the book, then because you've slowed your pace to a crawl, savoring the suspense." ―Boston Globe   A rare seventeeth-century painting links three lives, on three continents, over three centuries in The Last Painting of Sara de Vos, an exhilarating new novel from Dominic Smith. ...
