SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Bring your lunch and listen to art historian Michael Norris discuss the artwork and the man Vincent van Gogh on Wednesday, March 28 at 12:30 p.m. at the South Brunswick Public Library, 110 Kingston Lane in Monmouth Jct.
Vincent van Gogh, Dutch Post-Impressionist painter, is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In this seminar, dozens of his works of art will be explored, with a focus on pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. An overview of his life experiences and how it influenced his art will lead to a discussion, which will include talking about the differences between experiencing original artwork and reproductions.
This is a live presentation by art historian Michael Norris, Ph.D. With over 20 years of teaching at the Cloisters Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and other global lecture destinations, Michael “tries to find the story in the artwork” to share with interested audiences.
This seminar is part of our monthly Lunchtime Learning series. Attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch. Complimentary coffee, tea and dessert will be served. The Friends of the Library make this series, and the refreshments, possible using funds from Yoga and Tai-Chi classes and their book sales held three times per year in the Library.
