Film Lecture Losing Picasso: The Challenges of Condensing a Life, Princeton University Art Museum

Thursday February 18, 2021
5:30 PM

The filmmakers Ismail Merchant and James Ivory faced almost insurmountable challenges in producing the film Surviving Picasso, which takes as its subject the relationship between Pablo Picasso and his companion Françoise Gilot. This lecture with Caroline Harris, associate director for education, investigates the resulting depiction of the painter, providing a larger context for the period portrayed. Watch the film at your leisure, then join us on Zoom on February 18 for the live lecture. Presented in partnership with the Princeton Garden Theatre. Details and free registration here.

Drawing from the Collections: Unique Cropping, Princeton University Art Museum

Thursday February 18, 2021
8:00 PM

This live art-making class is inspired by Edward Hopper's Universalist Church. In this partial view of an eighteenth-century Universalist church in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Hopper shows only the elegant white spire, obscuring the rest of the building with intervening houses. The lines of the roofs adjacent to the church lead the eye across both axes of the image to the steeple. In this class we will focus on creating a unique architectural composition by cropping the image and closely focusing on one aspect of a scene. In partnership with the Arts Council of Princeton.
