    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.

    September 22, 2010: Alfred Stieglitz
    December 8, 2010: Barberini Faun
    March 9, 2011: Statue of Meleager
