Tue, May 5, 11 – 11:30 am & Thu, May 6, 6:30 – 7 pm | Meet at Visitor Services Desk
French printmaker Félix Bracquemond (1833-1914) produced distinctive images of birds throughout his prolific career. Though these artworks reveal Bracquemond’s close appreciation of nature, often they also inventively combine image with textincluding poems and artfully arranged captions to impart symbolism to his feathered subjects. Join Kristie Couser, Curatorial Assistant for the Mellon Collections, for a gallery talk that will interpret metaphors, puns, and other figures of speech illustrated in the exhibition Félix Bracquemond: Impressionist Innovator.
