In this lecture, San Francisco artist Marlene Aron will examine the work of Vincent Van Gogh and Camille Pissarro. Over one hundred slides will be shown, from their earliest drawings and lithographs, to their most beautiful and powerful paintings. She will demonstrate how these two artists, whose shared compassion for the laborer, the peasant, and those who struggled to get by in their daily lives, would be the perfect spokespersons for today’s 99% political movement.
