Details

Our first meeting of the year will be held on Thursday September 6th at 7:30 pm at the James Lorah House Auditorium in Doylestown. Our speaker is local artist and lecturer on art history at the Delaware Valley University CLR courses, Stafford Ordahl. Stafford will be speaking on John Singer Sargent, a foremost portrait painter, as well as several of the painters around him. This time he will cover two little-remembered friends of Sargent: Anders Zorn, a Swede of immense talent who studied and worked in Paris before returning to his native Sweden and Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida, a Spaniard loosely allied to the French Impressionists -- who painted with abandon and didn't follow the 'rules' of Impressionism.
