Is there anything more enjoyable than looking at art and talking about books? We at the Museum Library don’t think so and that’s why we started an art-themed book club! Join us in the galleries for a discussion of Kassia St. Clair’s The Secret Lives of Color as we view the exhibition “Donald Beauregard: An American in Paris”
The Secret Lives of Color explores 75 different shades and hues, painting the history of culture from acid yellow to scarlet women to imperial purple.
An American in Paris: Donald Beauregard surveys the short yet ambitious career of one of the first artists affiliated with the New Mexico Museum of Art . Following his study at the prestigious Académie Julian in Paris in 1906-07, Beauregard looked to the avant-garde for guidance and developed a style that blended the innovative experiments of Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, and the early work of Henri Matisse.
