Stephen Hannock: Painted VistaVisions

September 28, Friday, 7:30 p.m.

Presented in connection with the exhibit Gathering Light: The Art of Stephen Hannock, this lecture by art historian Jason Rosenfeld explores the recent art of the Williamstown-based painter and uncovers in his singular and original method of producing grandly scaled and luminous landscapes a process that involves a filmic sensibility in terms of its panoramic scope and distinctive form of narrative.

Jason Rosenfeld is Distinguished Chair and Professor of Art History at Marymount Manhattan College, New York. Academic interests include British art, specifically Victorian, modern architecture, and contemporary art. He was a co-curator of the exhibition, “The Post-Pre-Raphaelite Print” at the Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University, New York (1995), and contributed to the “Pre-Raphaelite and Other Masters: The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection” exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2003). He co-curated an exhibition on John Everett Millais at Tate Britain, London, which travelled to Amsterdam, Fukuoka and Tokyo (2007–9). He is author of a Phaidon Press monograph on Millais (2012) and co-curator of the present exhibition “Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-garde” at Tate Britain, London, which will travel to the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. in February 2013, and then to the Pushkin Museum of Art in Moscow and the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo.
