William H. Gerdts, William Blair Bruce and the Impressionist Artist Colonies of Giverny and Grèz-sur-Loing
Saturday, November 17
11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
With the generous support of the A.K. Prakash Foundation
Among artistic colonies operating in France around the turn of the twentieth century, Giverny was definitely the best-known, thanks to the presence of Claude Monet, a venerated Impressionist painter. Come hear about the importance of this picturesque village as well as Grèz-sur-Loing, another popular anglophone destination in the development of Canadian modern art, as illustrated by experiences of Hamilton, Ontario-born painter William Blair Bruce. This lecture by William H. Gerdts, author of Monet’s Giverny: An Impressionist Colony and Professor Emeritus of City University at New York, is an opportunity not-to-be-missed! This encounter is generously sponsored by the A.K. Prakash Foundation.
