Art Historian Vivian Gordon

The Gurlitt Find - 1,000 Artworks looted from Jewish dealers.

 

In 2012, over 1,000 artworks suspected as confiscated from Jewish and other owners were found secreted away in a Munich apartment belonging to Cornelius Gurlitt.  The stash had been inherited from his father who was one of the principal art dealers for the Nazis.  Pieces from the Gurlitt “trove” have now been displayed in public for the first time.  This illustrated talk will tell the story of this sensational find and show works by Cézanne, Monet, Renoir, Kandinsky, and many others that have reemerged after decades.

 

 Vivian Gordon is an independent art historian.  She earned graduate degrees from Columbia University and was the recipient of a Samuel H. Kress Foundation Fellowship.  She has taught at Columbia and the City University of New York, and was a lecturer for many years at The Metropolitan Museum of Art giving gallery talks, tours, and writing audio guide scripts.  She currently speaks on a wide range of topics at numerous libraries and other locations in the New York area.

 

This program is free and open to the public.  Bagels and coffee will be served.
