Author Talk: Alfred Maurer: At the Vanguard of Modernism

Author and curator, Stacey Epstein will discuss her new book on American painter, Alfred Maurer (1868-1932)  His friendships with key figures, including the collectors Leo and Gertrude Stein as well as Dr. Albert Barnes, positioned him at the center of new and changing ideas about art.  First recognized for his elegant figure paintings, Maurer brought his painterly skills to increasingly adventurous modernism, championing Fauvism and the avant-garde in America.  Toward the end of his life, he created radical and daring imagery that forecast innovations in abstraction.  This book accompanies a major traveling exhibition now at the Addison Gallery of Art in Andover, MA
