Jim Herbert to speak at OCMA Visionaries lecture October 21st

Professor James Herbert will be speaking October 21st on Impressionist artist Édouard Manet in conjunction with the Los Angeles exhibition of Manet and Modern Beauty for OCMA's Fall 2019 Visionaries series. Professor Herbert's lecture is complimentary for all and all other lectures are as noted or $5 for students.

The Visionaries series provides the historical framework for women’s participation in the art world. Lectures explore how women became artists through family workshops and educational training.

The provoking question posed by art historian Linda Nochlin, “Why have there been no great women artists?” provides background for critical analyses of early modern women artists, including Artemisia Gentileschi, Clara Peeters, and Maria Sibylla Merian.

Women’s rare acceptances into art academies are considered through the examples of Angelica Kauffmann and Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, portrait painter to the Queen of France Marie Antoinette.

The roles played by Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot in the impressionist movement conclude this lecture series around the turn of the twentieth century.
