Country House Film Series Continues October 12
For Immediate Release
October 02, 2003
The Clark Art Institute's film series "Country House Capers" will continue on Sunday, October 12, with a 2 p.m. showing of Howard's End. The 1992 Merchant-Ivory film stars Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, and Vanessa Redgrave in an adaptation of the E.M. Forster novel. Admission is free.
Offered on Sundays at 2 p.m. the "Country House Capers" series features films set at country houses in England and France, inspired by the Château de La Faloise, the French country house featured in the fall exhibition Édouard Baldus: Landscape and Leisure in Early French Photography. The exhibition, on view through December 28, explores the work of pioneering French photographer Édouard Baldus (1813-1889). In 1856, Baldus created a series of photographs on the grounds of the Château de La Faloise, featuring the family and friends of château owner Frédéric Bourgeois de Mercey. The nine photographs, most of which exist in only one print, are reunited for the first time in the exhibition, along with 50 photographs highlighting the best of French photography of the 1850s.
The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
