Members Only: Sterling and Francine: A Visual Romance
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
As we celebrate Valentine’s Day, members of the Clark will take a special look at prints and drawings bought by Sterling and Francine Clark that show their fondness for fanciful images of love and romance. From their acquisitions of enticing 18th-century French prints by Fragonard to high-brow drawings by Edgar Degas, the couple had an eye for images of courtship. Manton Curator Jay A. Clarke, will be our guide in this romantic visual adventure. Join us afterwards for a wine and cheese reception. This event is available to Sustainer level and above members. The event will take place in the Print Room. Members will meet at the library doors. Space is limited; registration is required. To register, click here or call 413 458 0524.
