Mad on Color: Impressionism in Venice
April 18, 2013 at 6 p.m.
Historian Bernard Berenson wrote from Venice to his patron Isabella Stewart Gardner in 1888, “One soon forgets to think of form here, going almost mad on color, thinking in color, talking in color, almost living in color.”
Shackelford will show the ways Impressionists like Renoir and Monet went mad on color in the magical city of water and light. He will also touch on other contemporaries and friends Whistler and Sargent.
The lecture is free. Meadows Museum members will get priority seating until 5:40 p.m. The event will be held in the Bob and Jean Smith Auditorium.
The Meadows Museum is located on the campus of Southern Methodist University at 5900 Bishop Blvd., Dallas, Texas.
