Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History Lecture
Blue in Green: Viridian & Jacob Lawrence
Reception to follow.
Richard J. Powell, John Spencer Bassett Professor of Art and Art History, Duke University
This talk explores how Jacob Lawrence's singular use of color – specifically the modern, blue-green color known as viridian – and his idiosyncratic forms and compositions offer a systematic entryway into his art and, in concert with his themes and subjects, a more nuanced understanding of his paintings.
