Watson Gordon Lecture Series 2013; 'Studying Nature as a Hunter, a Savage': Vincent van Gogh and Karl Bodmer
THE WATSON GORDON LECTURE 2013
The eighth Watson Gordon Lecture was given on 7 November 2013 by Richard Kendall, art historian and Curator at Large for the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Massachusetts.
Author of numerous books and exhibition catalogues; he is an internationally renowned expert on Impressionism. Above all he is known for his ground-breaking publications on Edgar Degas.
His wide-ranging lecture grew out of an exhibition he is preparing on Van Gogh and nature, and illuminatingly explored both this broad new understanding of Vincent’s work and details such as his forgotten fascination with Karl Bodmer.
