American Art Posters from the Lauder Collection

Allison Rudnick and Elliot Bostwick Davis

Friday, March 20 / 7 pm

Leonard A. Lauder, one of the foremost collectors of modernist art, also acquired American art posters from the 1890s made at the height of the Art Nouveau movement.
A selection of these exceptional works is on loan from The Metropolitan Museum of Art this spring. Allison Rudnick, Assistant Curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum who oversees the collection, will discuss the significance of these posters with Norton Director Elliot Bostwick Davis.
