Email from Sue Stone:
You're receiving this email because you have signed up for the Toulouse-Lautrec lecture at the Carriage Barn for tomorrow night, May 6th. Unfortunately, I am fighting a stubborn bronchitis and have no voice, so I will be unable to present tomorrow.
Thank you for your interest my talk -- I'm still very excited to share it with you all!
I thought some might enjoy this lecture at the Carriage Barn Gallery, coinciding with our visit to New Britain Museum of American Art for First Friday on May 3, when we can view the Toulouse Lautrec exhibit. Join me at 6:20 at Carriage Barn, for a wine reception 6:30 followed by the lecture.
Sue Stone presents Toulouse Lautrec
Artifice, Escapism and Decadence in Turn-of-the-Century Paris
Monday, May 13th – 6:30pm wine reception/ 7:00 pm Lecture
On the evening of Monday, May 13th, Sue Stone, New Canaan resident, will present a lecture and slide show on Toulouse Lautrec; Artifice, Escapism and Decadence in Paris at the Turn of the Century. The event begins with a wine reception at 6:30 pm followed by Ms. Stone’s presentation.
Ms. Stone has a Master’s in French Language and Civilization from New York University and will be presenting this lecture to coincide with an exceptional exhibit, Toulouse-Lautrec & His World, at the New Britain Museum of American Art, that runs through May 12th. Seen for the first time outside Europe, this unusually comprehensive exhibit begins its U.S. tour in New Britain, Connecticut.
Ms. Stone’s presentation will include discussion of the historical and cultural context in which Lautrec created his innovative and avant-garde artworks, along with a slideshow.
