The Oxbow Gallery presents

Derain, Balthus, and Giacometti


Talk by Stanley Lewis, Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 7pm.

Last fall the Paris Museum of Modern Art mounted a show called “Derain, Balthus, Giacometti: Une Amitié Artistique” which explored the friendship between three major 20th-century artists: André Derain (1880–1954), Balthus (1908–2001) and Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966). Stanley Lewis, a well-known painter who taught at Smith College during the late 1980s and who was one of the founders of Oxbow Gallery, attended that show in Paris and will give a talk about it on 1/25. Please join us.
