Our March Monthly meeting will be at 10 am on Friday March 11th in the Berger Center.
During this visually opulent talk, local artist Kristen Throop, will weave a narrative web around J.A.D. Ingres’s 1853 masterpiece, his portrait of Pauline de Broglie, which hangs at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Illustrated with numerous original artworks by Throop, this discussion uses Ingres’s masterpiece as a lens to rethink art history.
