March 5, 2015 – Valentine Dudensing and Friends (1922 -1948)
Speaker: Nancy Rivard Shaw
Curator Emerita, American Art, Detroit Institute of Arts
Chair for the evening is: Joe Posch
Valentine Dudensing was once one of the best known art dealers in New York. From 1922 until he retired to France in 1948, his gallery was a major center for European art. Dudensing specialized in School of Paris paintings, long before these works were readily accepted by the American public. He also supported a select group of Americans, including John Kane, Louis Eilshemius and Joseph Stella. This talk focuses on thirteen artists – some long since forgotten, others forgotten and rediscovered, and some forgotten again.
