Join us for this lecture in conjunction with the special exhibition "Matisse, Picasso, and Modern Art in Paris: The T. Catesby Jones Collections at the VMFA and the U.Va. Art Museum".

Kenneth E. Silver is the author of one of the key accounts of modern French art in the early part of the twentieth century,"Esprit de Corps: The Art of the Parisian Avant-Garde and the First World War" (1989). A more recent book,"Making Paradise: Art, Modernity and the Myth of the French Riviera" (2000), explains the fascination that the Côte d'Azur held for modern artists. Silver has co-curated a series of notable exhibitions on aspects of French art and culture at New York’s Jewish Museum: "The Circle of Montparnasse" (1985); "An Expressionist in Paris: The Paintings of Chaim Soutine" (1998); and "Sarah Bernhardt: The Art of High Drama" (2005). He is professor of modern art at New York University and adjunct curator of art at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, where he most recently organized the exhibition "Paris Portraits: Artists, Friends, and Lovers" (2008).
