Freed Lecture “A New Sort of Beauty: Georges Braque in America”

Sunday, Mar 16, 2014
2 p.m. - 3 p.m.

Law Building, Lower Level
1001 Bissonnet Map & Directions

Presented by Alison de Lima Greene, curator of contemporary art and special projects.

This year, the Freed Lecture series presents four free lectures related to the exhibition Georges Braque: A Retrospective.

The Museum’s curator of contemporary art and special projects discusses why Georges Braque’s work—from the earliest experiments with Fauvism, through Cubism and the late paintings—appealed to and entered American collections. A reception and exhibition viewing follow the lecture.

This lecture is free with Museum admission. Reserve your seat in advance! Use the "Get Tickets" button and print at home; call 713.639.7771; or visit any MFAH admissions desk..
