Art Viewing Adventures: Partners in Art (Virtual)
Mon October 24, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Artist couples — lovers, married or otherwise entangled — are as old as art itself. Names that come to mind are Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, Wassily Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter, Man Ray and Lee Miller to name just a few.
In this program, we’ll be viewing works from some of these artist pairs. From the tumultuous and tragic to the artistically fruitful, the stories behind these power couples of art history attest to the power of love. We’ll consider the question of whether artist couples, in their attraction to one another, create something that they might otherwise have not.
