PMCA 1234: Second Saturday Spotlight Talk

Spotlight Talks take place the second Saturday of every month at 2:00pm. A PMCA docent leads an engaging and insightful 20–minute discussion about a work of art currently on view in our Main Gallery exhibition, The Golden Twenties: Portraits and Figure Paintings by Joseph Kleitsch.

This month’s focus: Miss Ketchum

Joseph Kleitsch was a prominent portrait painter first in Chicago and then in the artists’ colony of Laguna Beach. This achievement stems from his exceptional capacity to paint expressive portraits imbued with the demeanor and essence of each of his subjects. Miss Ketchum depicts a successful New York designer whose individual expression and free thought are particularly discernible in this vivid portrait.

Note: Spotlight Talks meet near the exhibition title wall.

Presented as part of our PMCA 1234 monthly programming.
Free for PMCA members. Free with admission. Children 12 and under are always free!
