The Newark Museum Speakers Bureau will present the program Flowers in Art at the Denville Public Library this Saturday, May 21, at 2:30pm. Using examples of art from the Museum’s collection, the museum curators will show how artists have used their visual language to capture the essence of flowers. Painting, sculpture, folk art, decorative arts, furniture and jewelry highlight the work of many artists from the ancient world through today, including Henry Inman, Martin Johnson Heade, Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Workshops, Florine Stettheimer, Max Weber, Marsden Hartley, Georgia O’Keefe, Jacob Lawrence and Robert Rauschenburg.
Sounds like a fascinating talk! RSVP if you wish.
