September 30 Clark Conversation “Willibald Sauerländer Talks to Mark Haxthausen” Cancelled Due to Illness
For Immediate Release
September 12, 2005
The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute regrets to announce that Willibald Sauerländer is unable for health reasons to travel to the United States, and that the Clark Conversation “Willibald Sauerländer Talks to Mark Haxthausen,” planned for 5:30 pm Friday, September 30 at the Clark, is therefore cancelled.
Sauerländer is one of the most distinguished art historians of his generation. After holding professorship in the History of Art at the University of Fribourg he was, from 1970-89, the director of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich. He has received awards and honors in Germany, France, Italy and Britain, and the United States, and is Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres in France and a fellow of the British Academy.
The Clark hopes to reschedule with Sauerländer and Haxthausen at a later date.
The Clark is one of the country’s foremost art museums, as well as a dynamic center for research and higher education in art history and criticism. The Institute is one of only a few art museums in the U.S. that is also a major research and academic center, with an international fellowship program and regular conferences, symposia, and colloquia, and an important art research library. The Clark, together with Williams College, jointly sponsors one of the nation’s leading M.A. programs in art history, which has been part of the professional development of a significant number of directors of art museums, curators, and scholars. The institute encompasses one of the most comprehensive art history libraries in the world.
