Susan Grace Galassi, Monet’s Little Ice Age
Time: 5:30 pm-6:30 pm
Susan Grace Galassi, Curator Emerita of The Frick Collection, will give a virtual talk Monet’s Little Ice Age for the Norfolk Library on Thursday, February 18 at 5:30 p.m. During one of the most difficult periods of his life, Monet and his family took refuge for three years in Vétheuil, a remote agricultural village on the Seine. Confronting poverty, despondency, and personal loss, Monet produced over 200 paintings between 1878 and 1881, among them a painting in The Frick Collection and a haunting series of ice floes. Dr. Galassi will look at his work of this period and at the climate events that provided him with sublime imagery of nature’s raw power, renewing his creative energies and setting him back on his path that culminated in his final decades in Giverny. Please register for this talk here, and we will email you the link to Zoom shortly before the event.
