An Art Historian’s Favourite Anecdotes

May 16, 2012
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

“Once a thing is known, it can never be unknown." – Anita Brookner, author 

Dr. Alan G. Wilkinson is an art historian specializing in modern sculpture. He helped to establish the Henry Moore Centre at the AGO where he was a curator for twenty years.  Dr. Wilkinson will talk about art and artists he has known and loved; the Moore Gift; and the reasons and justifications for the acquisitions he made, among them works by Gauguin, Picasso, Brancusi, Epstein, Gaudier, Gabo, Lipchitz, Tanguy, and Hepworth.
