Olivier Bernier, author
Great artists reach for the truth, especially in portraits. Self-portraits test all their skills as it is themselves, their most secret being, that they must reveal. As we go from Rubens in the 17th century to Picasso in the 20th, we will see not just who these great painters really were, but also how they were shaped by their times.
Rubens and the Joys of Success
Rembrandt and the Rise of Anguish
Cézanne and the Travails of Renewal
Van Gogh and the Search for Inner Truth
Picasso and the Courage of Truth
This program led by critically acclaimed author and historian Olivier Bernier includes a light breakfast, a lecture in the Douglas Dillon Boardroom, and a gallery tour. The last class on November 15 includes a special luncheon in the Balcony Lounge to conclude the series.
