In this panel discussion on the trajectories of abstract art, two emerging scholars present papers: one focuses on the work of the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian, perhaps the most significant abstract painter in Europe before WWII, who ended his career in the U.S. A second paper focuses on the Spanish-Uruguayan artist Joaquin Torres-Garcia, who was active in Europe and Montevideo until his death in 1949.
Please RSVP to Sam Johnson by Oct. 15.
