The House Beautiful III: James Archer Abbott
Evergreen Museum & Library (Bakst Theatre)
Baltimore, MD
Share this event:

Counted among the most important artistic commissions at Evergreen House are three rooms designed between 1922 and 1924 by the revolutionary stage designer and artist Léon Bakst. Commissioned by Ambassador John Work Garrett and Mrs. Alice Warder Garrett, these spaces serve as unique American transmissions of European post-war modernism. James Archer Abbott, the Philip Franklin Wagley Director and Curator of Evergreen Museum & Library, will consider these rooms in the context of Bakst's influential visions for the professional stage. Historic paint color consultant Matthew J. Mosca will reveal his findings from recently completed paint analysis and Amy Kimball of the Johns Hopkins Sheridan Libraries will share insights into Bakst's working relationship with the Garretts' architect, Laurence Hall Fowler.

A reception with the speaker follows the lecture.
Wednesday May 04, 2016 6:30 PM - Wednesday May 04, 2016 8:00 PM | $15.00 - $20.00
