Lunchtime Lecture: NCMA Artists in Mucha’s Time

Join Michele Frederick, associate curator of European art, to learn about works from the NCMA collection in the exhibition Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau Visionary. First she examines the international scope of the artistic practices and developments that influenced Mucha through two paintings by American artists who studied in France and then brought new kinds of art back to the United States around the turn of the twentieth century. Then Frederick explores Mucha’s and Auguste Rodin’s lasting friendship and how new scientific and aesthetic developments influenced Rodin’s transformation of sculpture into modern art.
