Details:

Curatorial Assistant Linnea Hodge (WCAS, Art History 2017), lead an informal, afternoon gallery discussion of the works of Lovis Corinth (German, 1858‒1925).

A display of late self-portraits from the Block Museum collection showed an artist intensely examining or perhaps even resisting his own mortality. Corinth was among the best-known artists working in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Germany and an influential member of the Berlin Secession, a group of artists formed to challenge the official artists’ association.
