Thursday, April 2
David M. Lubin, the Charlotte Weber Professor of Art at Wake Forest University, will discuss N.C. Wyeth’s famous 1912 illustrations for Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic adventure tale Treasure Island.

Monet’s Final Project: The Grand Decoration at the Orangerie
After the death of his wife and son, the elderly Monet threw himself into a project of immense paintings that came to be the largest single Impressionist work of art. The subject, his water garden in Giverny, combined water and sky into an aqueous pictorial realm unprecedented in art history. Monet constructed a large studio specifically for the project, which Dr. Brettell will discuss in detail.
