Artist-Immigrants in Twentieth Century Paris and New York
with Nancy Traeger
Sunday, May 19 at 2:00pm
Enjoy an afternoon with the works of Brancusi, Modligliani, Albers, De Kooning, Rothko, Ernst, Gorky and more.
Artists from all over the world flocked to Paris in the beginning of the twentieth century looking for personal and artistic freedom. By the late 1930s, with the rise of Fascism and the threat
of Nazism, many left Europe and came to America, and the center of the art world shifted from Paris to New York. This presentation will examine various artistic movements, highlighting
artist-immigrants who contributed to the development of Modern and Post-War art.
Nancy Traeger has studied art at the University of Madrid, CW Post, and the Lincoln Center Institute. Combining her passion for teaching, art, and New York City, Nancy has created a private
art tour program called Art in the City. A docent at the Nassau County Museum of Art since 2004, she has also served the Museum as Docent Co-Coordinator, Docent Trainer, and Presenter for the Outreach Program.
