Sculptor Bela L. Pratt – Boston Public Library
Bela L. Pratt may not be a household name like Bella Swan, the character from the ‘Twilight’ series, but this Boston sculptor was an important artist during the early 20th century. I’ll discuss his accomplishments and acquaintances.

Van Gogh & His Influence on Art
Van Gogh was a Dutch artist who influenced modern art, despite his short life and personal rejections. He left the art world a plethora of paintings in a variety of styles. I will discuss what really tells us 'volumes' about his inner thoughts.

Sargent - Madame X - Exhibit 1998-2000
Although the identity of Sargent’s ‘Madame X’ was revealed as Madame Pierre Gautreau, why was this painting so scandalous at the time? I’ll discuss the exhibit in Boston and NYC.

Renoir Paints ‘Luncheon of Boating Party’
Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s beloved painting is one of the most recognizable in the world. Over 100 years old, it still delights us with its color and subject matter. I will discuss his friends as models and the techniques Renoir used to connect them.

Color Theory Popularized by Seurat before Hirst
Georges Seurat was a Post Impressionist artist who studied color theory and originated Pointillism, a systematic approach to applying multiple dots to a canvas. Just a century later, British artist Damien Hirst would create his ‘spot’ paintings. I’ll discuss their similarities and differences.

Augustus Saint-Gaudens – Greatest US Sculptor
Born in Dublin to Irish and French parents, then emigrating to the US, Augustus Saint-Gaudens was lauded by President Theodore Roosevelt and historian Lorado Taft. I’ll explain why he was called ‘the greatest sculptor of the late 19th century’.

A Comparison of Gothic Cathedrals in Europe
Chartres Cathedral in France, Salisbury Cathedral in England, and Siena Cathedral in Italy will be compared, relative to each country’s interpretation of the Gothic style.

Caravaggio ‘The Taking of Christ’ Exhibit 1999
‘The Taking of Christ’ was on loan to Boston College from Ireland in 1999. The Caravaggio painting was the basis for Jonathan Harr’s book, ‘The Lost Painting.’ I will discuss the controversy over the painting’s true identity, its provenance and my firsthand reactions.

Picasso Early Years Exhibit - MFA Boston 1997-98
Pablo Picasso may be best known for cubism in the history of modern art, but his early works are equally as impressive. I will discuss the period 1892-1906.

Artist Van Dyck Influence on Gainsborough
Anthony Van Dyck was a 17th century Flemish Baroque artist and Thomas Gainsborough was an English Rococo and Romantic artist of the 18th century. How could the former have influenced the latter?
