Famous American Artists: Then & Now

In two fully illustrated talks, art historian Joan Lipton, Ph.D., will discuss the early work of such luminaries as Thomas Hart Benton, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, the Soyer Brothers, Ben Shahn, Jacob Lawrence,
Romare Bearden, Louise Nevelson and Augusta Savage, among others, whose art, financed by FDR’s Work Projects Administration, brought them to the public’s attention. She will then follow up with all the artists’ later and more recognizable works. 
The contrasts will be illuminating indeed!
