On November 2, I’ll be teaching a one-night class about some lesser-known women artists who were active in New York from the 1920s through the 1940s (and beyond) — O’Keeffe’s contemporaries, if you will. You can find full information at the Brooklyn Brainery’s website, here! Image: Peggy Bacon, Frenzied Effort, 1925. Drypoint. Metropolitan Museum of Art, Harriet Brisbane Dick Fund, 26.10.7.
On May 18, 2017, I’ll be teaching a one-night class called “Iconic Perfume Bottles” at the Brooklyn Brainery. We’ll be looking at classic perfume bottle designs through the lenses of perfumery, design history, and cultural context.
