James L. Weinberg Distinguished Lecture
Kenneth E. Silver, Professor of Art History, New York University, discusses Soutine’s dual role as both radical innovator and conservative practitioner, a fluctuating identity dependent on the critical needs and prejudices of the interwar Parisian art world in conjunction with Chaim Soutine: Flesh.
Silver has been the recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship and an American Council of Learned Societies Grant. He has also been a Getty Research Institute Visiting Scholar and a Mellon-Getty Fellow at the Phillips Collection. Silver is a Contributing Editor of Art in America and is Adjunct Curator of Art at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich, Connecticut.
