On Saturday, April 2, at 11 am, please join artist Stephen Lapthisophon and Nancy E. Edwards, curator of European art and Head of Academic Services at the Kimbell Art Museum, for a gallery talk. These talks usually contrast a modern painting/artist and an older classical painting/artist.
Lapthisophon’s For Mimmo Rotella will be on display at the Kimbell during the talk, and he will discuss his own artwork in relation to works in the Kimbell collection, including Francisco de Goya’s Portrait of the Matador Pedro Romero.
Admission is free as is parking. No, you don’t need to make a reservation; just show up.
Stephen Lapthisophon’s , For Mimmo Rotella, was painted in 2014, using house paint, coffee, oil stick, spray paint, and ink. It will be fun to learn why he chose those particular materials rather than traditional oil paints to create this painting. Guess we’ll just have to wait to ask that question and hear his answer.
The Kimbell Art Museum is located in Fort Worth’s Cultural District, a block off University and West 7th. Street. For additional information, you may call 817 332-8451, or visit the Kimbell’s web site at http://www.kimbellart.org
