Past Event: Philadelphia Museum of Art | American Still Life

        Mark Mitchell from the Yale Art Gallery wowed a sold out crowd of Yalies, guests and family as he toured us through his American still life exhibition: Audubon to Warhol: American Still Life. He simplified the different periods of development in American still life painting. He amplified what a still life painting means, to where by the early 20th century, you looked at paintings in a completely different light.

Those who missed the tour will still enjoy seeing the exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art until its closing on January 10, 2016.

Past event details:

Here’s a hint at the kind of art that you will see . . . .

art museum

Charles Demuth (1883 – 1935). Poster Portrait of O’Keeffe Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University.

The club has a very limited opportunity to indulge in a private tour of this exhibition by the curator. Since creating the exhibition, Mark Mitchell made a career move to-of all places-the Yale University Art Gallery! He graciously has agreed to return to Philadelphia for a Saturday, November 7 morning tour by the Yale Club of Philadelphia. We will meet by 9:15 AM and the tour will start at 9:30 AM.

I emphasize that this is a limited opportunity in that 25 club members can attend. You can request one or two places, and will need to postmark a letter on or after October 8. Each place is $40 and a check payable to the Yale Club of Philadelphia will need to be sent to
