Eakins, Sargent, and Chase: Fortuny’s Divergent American Admirers

When: 
Thursday, March 7, 2019 - 6:00pm

During his short life and the decade following his death, Mariano Fortuny attracted the admiration of American artists who seemed to have little in common with him or with each other. This talk examines the Spanish master’s appeal to a range of young American painters working in differing styles: from Thomas Eakin’s realism, to John Singer Sargent’s painterly naturalism, to William Merritt Chase’s adaptation of brushwork akin to Impressionism. Fortuny’s popularity among American artists and connoisseurs was a precursor to the wave of Hispanophilia that struck some sectors of the country’s cultural elite starting in the 1890s.

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Brazilian artist and writer Ricardo Basbaum will discuss his work and his most recent book,Diagrams, 1994-Ongoing.

Recently his work was included in the opening of the New Tate Modern in London (2016),Something in Space Escapes Our Attempts at  Surveying (Kunstverein Stuttgart, 2014), and biennials in São Paulo, South Korea, Kiev and Sydney, among other exhibits.

His solo projects in the past five years have been shown throughout Brazil and in Vancouver, London and Chicago. An anthology of his diagrams was presented at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Spain (2013). Basbaum is the author of Manual do artista-etc (2013) and Além da pureza visual (2007) and contributed toMaterialität der Diagramme - Kunst und Theorie (2012). He lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, where he is a full professor at the Instituto de Arte e Comunicação Social of Universidade Federal Fluminense. For more information call 214.768.2787.
