Get Acquainted with Madame Monnom at the Clark March 8 During Free Gallery Talk

For Immediate Release

February 26, 2007

The painting Madame Monnom by Théo van Rysselberghe is the subject of the next Looking at Lunchtime Talk at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. On Thursday, March 8 at 12:30 pm, Michael Cassin, curator of education, will discuss this work and its history during a half hour gallery talk. This talk is free.

Though the artist may not be as famous as some of his contemporaries, the Dutch-born painter Théo van Rysselberghe was nevertheless responsible for a considerable body of work, painted under the influence of the Impressionists and the Pointillists, lead by Georges Seurat.

Looking at Lunchtime gallery talks continue with Cassin examining Chrysanthemums by James Jacques Joseph Tissot on Thursday, April 12. The talks take place at 12:30 pm on the second Thursday of every month. Attendees may purchase food from the courtyard café or bring a bag lunch to enjoy before or after the gallery talk.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, MA. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission is free November through May. Admission June 1 through October 31 is $12.50 for adults, free for children 18 and under, members, and students with valid ID. For more information, call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
