Max Beckmann - In-Sight Evenings: Looking Deeper and Differently
May 11, 2011
Lynette Roth, Daimler-Benz Associate Curator of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums
When it debuted in 1928, Max Beckmann’s Self-Portrait in Tuxedo (1927) was widely acclaimed as a “brutal” portrayal of the self and a return to a more painterly style. This lecture will examine the compelling history of this canvas—from its genesis until it entered the Busch-Reisinger collection in 1941—and trace the significant role of Beckmann’s work in the American reception of German art.
The In-Sight Evenings series features talks by curators, after-hours viewing of the galleries, live music, conversation, and refreshments. Other events:
September 22, 2010: Alfred Stieglitz
December 8, 2010: Barberini Faun
March 9, 2011: Statue of Meleager
