Morris Hirshfield Rediscovered: Art History in First Person
November 10 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
In the context of Professor George Baker’s Art History graduate seminar, “Minor Histories of Surrealism,” Professor Richard Meyer of Stanford University will join us for a talk and collective discussion of his new book and exhibition.
Richard Meyer’s newly published book, Master of the Two Left Feet: Morris Hirshfield Rediscovered (MIT Press, 2022),is a study of a Brooklyn tailor and slipper-maker who, against all odds, achieved international recognition as a self-taught painter in the 1940s. Coinciding with the book’s publication, a Hirshfield retrospective curated by Meyer is currently on display at the American Folk Art Museum in New York.
All are invited to attend.
