Column & Stripe Virtual Talk: The Nabi Movement

Thursday, August 12, 2021, 6:00 p.m.

About The Event

Join Heather Lemonedes Brown, the Virginia N. and Randall J. Barbato Deputy Director and Chief Curator, to learn more about the CMA’s current special exhibition Private Lives: Home and Family in the Art of the Nabis, Paris, 1889–1900. Heather will discuss how four members of the Nabi brotherhood—Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Félix Vallotton, and Édouard Vuillard—sought to forge a new path for their art depicting domestic interiors, the home, and family life. Adopting the name Nabis, which translates as “prophets” in Hebrew, they created works of art that were enigmas to be deciphered, that suggested more than told, and that reflected their own personal feelings and emotions. 

Column & Stripe, Painting and Drawing Society, Print Club, and Womens Council members will receive a digital invitation. This event will be hosted on Zoom; the event link and instructions will be provided to those who RSVP.
