Our final meeting of the Fall season will be held on Tuesday, December 9, 1997 at 8:00 PM at the Lighthouse, 111 East 59th Street, between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue, New York, NY.
Our speaker of the evening will be Ms. Judith Applegate. Ms. Applegate will speak about the work of Emile lessore (1805-76) at the Wedgwood factory, how he was influenced by Ingres and other Neo-classical painters in France at the time, and how the popularity of Neo-classicism continued well after earlier manifestations in the last decades of the eighteenth century beyond the turn of the century, carrying forth the ideas of Robert Adam and earlier Wedgwood styles.
