Sordoni Art Gallery to Host Art in Context Lecture on Sept. 15

Wednesday, Sept. 15 | 5 p.m.

Curated by Nancy Sojka

The roots of modern printmaking were revived and cultivated in nineteenth-century France. With Paris at the center, the era witnessed an explosion of invention, creativity, and success that continued for more than a century.

Aspects of daily life—in all its complexities from the examination of politics to the depiction of city streets and rural farms or to the representation of human relationships—became new, dominant themes.

Works by artists such Théodore Géricault, Honoré Daumier, Charles Méryon, Edgar Degas and others featured in the exhibition that tell this intriguing story of technical, cultural and artistic innovations will be the focus of this talk.
