“The Palette Reveals the Artist” Lecture with Alexander Katlan
Sunday, December 13th at 2pm at the Art League of Long Island (107 East Deer Park Rd, Dix Hills, NY, 631-462-5400)www.artleagueli.org
Esteemed art conservator Alex Katlan will present an informative art talk based on his book “The Palette Reveals the Artist: The Grumbacher Artist Palette Collection and the Salmagundi Club Palette Collection”.
The palette collection of the historic Salmagundi Club represents a piece of art history. Many well-known artists of the past 140 years such as William Merrit Chase and George Inness, Jr. have participated in the club tradition of leaving their palettes for display at the iconic brownstone in Greenwich Village.
What makes palettes a prized part of a collection is that as a piece of art history they provide insight into the artists’ unique styles, and as artwork they may be “working” or “demonstration” palettes painted with beautiful images.
This lecture is the perfect opportunity for artists and art lovers to meet a distinguished professional in the art world and learn about this unique collection. To learn more about the speaker and his book on the palette collection, visit alexanderkatlan.com
