The Life and Art of William Glackens:
A lecture and slideshow with art historian Avis Berman
William Glackens was an American realist painter who was essential to the development of avant-garde art in the opening decades of the twentieth century. A progressive artist who assimilated and adopted various currents of French modernism, Glackens lived on and around Washington Square from 1904 to his death in 1938.
Avis Berman, an independent writer and art historian, has written extensively on painting, sculpture, photography, design, and museum history. She is the author of Rebels on Eighth Street: Juliana Force and the Whitney Museum of American Art; James McNeill Whistler; and Edward Hopper’s New York. At present, she has organized and overseen the first museum survey of William Glackens’s work in nearly fifty years.
