Artist Florine Stettheimer: Icon of Jazz Age New York
Thursday, March 25th at 7:00pm
Presented by Janet Mandel, Retired Teacher and Art History Lecturer
March is Woman’s History month. There are so many amazing women artists; Florine Stettheimer is fascinating yet less well known. One of New York’s most unconventional painters, Florine Stettheimer was a keen and opinionated observer of the people and rapidly changing world around her. Her famous salon, attended by New York’s
avant-garde during the 1920s through the early ’40s, was legendary. She prophetically chose to portray subjects considered controversial even today, such as race, sexual orientation, gender, and religion. Join in and hear about her unique life and see some of her most celebrated works. It is time to recognize Florine Stettheimer as one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, whose work remains as modern and relevant today as it was a century ago.
