Friday, Jun 15, 6-9 pm

Included with admission. Free for Members. Reserve your seat today!

In conjunction with the exhibition Innovative Impressions, this thought-provoking evening combines printmaking, political questions, observation, and discussion. Join an artist in the Philbrook print studio to watch the printmaking process, from original idea to completed work. Then S. Hollis Clayson, Professor of Art History at Northwestern University and renowned scholar of nineteenth-century French art, will discuss Impressionist printmakers as they negotiated the creative process in Paris in the 1880s in her lecture, entitled “Image Production, Authorship, and Politics: Some Thoughts about the Impressionist Peintres-Graveurs between 1879 and 1891.”

Clayson is Professor of Art History and Bergen Evans Professor in the Humanities at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. She has written numerous books and articles and lectured widely on nineteenth-century European art and transatlantic exchanges between France and America. Her current projects include the book Illuminated Paris: Essays on Art and Light in the Belle Époque (forthcoming) and research focused on “the inescapability of the Eiffel Tower.”
