|Pace Presents is pleased to bring you Dr. Janetta Rebold Benton, who presents sold-out lectures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Dr. Benton is known for her fact-filled, fast-paced lectures, simultaneously informative and entertaining. She has specifically designed a new, inaugural lecture series for Pace that provides an in-depth look at the life and work of four masters, each with a distinctive personality, living in a different era, and working in a very personal style. Each artist is so unique: What is it about their work that causes them to be universally recognized as geniuses?
OCTOBER 12 AT 11:00AM
LEONARDO DA VINCI (1452-1519) AND THE RENAISSANCE:
Follow the life of this multi-talented genius in whose paintings and inventions art and science unite. Visit the home in which he was born in Italy and his chateau in France, a gift from King Francois Ier, in which he died.
OCTOBER 19 AT 11:00AM
REMBRANDT (1606-69) AND THE BAROQUE:
Trace the life of the "Lord of Light" in The Netherlands by examining his dramatic paintings and prints. Visit Rembrandt's luxurious townhouse in Amsterdam, ultimately lost to bankruptcy.
OCTOBER 26 AT 11:00AM
VINCENT VAN GOGH (1853-90) AND POST-IMPRESSIONISM:
Join this tormented Dutch artist as he moves from city to city, recording his surroundings, the people he knew, and, especially, his intense emotions in vivid color. His brother Theo was his unfailing source of emotional and financial support.
NOVEMBER 2 AT 11:00AM
PABLO PICASSO (1881-1973) AND CUBISM:
This Spanish prodigy moved to France where he was crucial to the development of Analytical Cubism, Collage Cubism, Synthetic Cubism, and much more. Innovative and creative to a rare degree, he is widely considered the most influential artist of the 20th century.
