Join Lois H. Constantine, author of Robert Brackman Remembered, for a conversation about her new book on her time studying with this internationally known artist, who was also a former president of The Mystic Art Association—now MMoA. Brackman, who himself studied with George Bellows, Robert Henri, and Ivan Olinsky, taught for many years at the Art Students League of New York. After retirement from the League, however, he taught at the newly-founded Lyme Academy of Fine Art, at his home in Noank, and, beginning in 1962, summer classes at the Madison Art School, where Lois became his pupil and learned, through him, an appreciation of classical art. This program complements the museum’s concurrent Brackman exhibition, which features loans and works from the permanent collection. The conversation will be followed by a book signing.
