From Symbolist Artist to the Carnaval de Nice: The Curious Life of Gustav-Adolf Mossa

May 16 @ 12:15 pm1:00 pm

The Symbolist School of painters in France is little known, even less appreciated. One of its least known figures was Gustav-Adolf Mossa (1883-1971) who spent more of his life as principal curator of the Nice Musée des Beaux-Arts. His own paintings are quite remarkable, visually engaging, and thematically troubling. This lecture will seek to shed light on a master symbolist artist.

Presented by Dr. Simon P. Sibelman, Professor Emeritus of French and Holocaust Studies, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, former Executive Director of the Virginia Holocaust Museum, and Professor Emeritus of French and Holocaust Studies, Appalachian State University

The audience is invited to bring a lunch to enjoy during the program.
