Fairfield University Art Museum's Curator of Education Michelle DiMarzo, PhD, leads an Art in Focus discussion.

Each event in our Art in Focus series offers an opportunity for an hour of close looking and informal discussion around a single work of art, led by Curator of Education Michelle DiMarzo, PhD. On Thursday, February 7, at 11 a.m. we'll be looking at a Pierre-Paul Prud'hon drawing from the Horvitz Collection.

A French Affair: Drawings and Paintings from The Horvitz Collection will be on view in the Bellarmine Hall Galleries from January 25 - March 29, 2019. History, mythology, poetry, and portraiture provided a vast range of subject matter for French artists of the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. Drawn from the peerless holdings of The Horvitz Collection—one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of early modern French art—this exhibition features paintings and drawings in all these genres by such celebrated artists as Charles Le Brun, Nicolas de Largillière, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Jean-Baptiste Oudry and Anne-Louis Girodet de Roucy Trioson.

The impressive selection of more than 50 drawings, some exhibited with related prints, focuses on a particular category—designs for book illustration—thereby highlighting not only the creative inventiveness of the artists who formulated lavish visual imagery from the written word, but also the rich literary traditions of France and the vibrant book publishing industry they spawned.

Join us for the opportunity to engage deeply with this work of art in a relaxed atmosphere. Reserve your seat now!
