Art Lecture by André Dombrowski
Ticket Price: FREE!

University of Pennsylvania Assistant Professor of Art History Andre Dombrowski considers the relationship between Post-Impressionism and the history of modern, industrial time-keeping, focusing in particular on the advent of universal time in 1884 and the serried order of Georges Seurat's pointillist technique developed around the same time. This lecture further proposes new interpretative means for assessing some of the chronometric devices in impressionist criticism written by Jules Laforgue and Felix Feneon.
