First Draft: the Role of Education in the Drawings of Abraham Bloemaert

Sunday, January 27, 2019, 4 - 6 pm
Carlton Hobbs LLC, 60 East 93rd Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10128

Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Nogrady, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Academic Programs, Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College

Hosted and with an introduction by: Dr. Andrew C. Weislogel, The Seymour R. Askin, Jr. ’47 Curator Earlier European and American Art, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University

In conjunction with MDNY 2019 Speical Loan Exhibition FIGURE/STUDY: Drawings from the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University, Elizabeth Nogrady, curator of academic programs at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College, will explore the theme of education as it relates to the drawings of seventeenth-century Dutch master Abraham Bloemaert. Bloemaert, whose work is represented in the exhibition, never received sustained training from an established artist early in his career and was, according to biographer Karel van Mander, a “master without a master.” Nevertheless, he went on to become both a prolific artist and teacher to a large number of students in his adopted hometown of Utrecht. Drawings played a key role in both his self-education and the education he provided to the generation of artists trained in his studio. This discussion will focus primarily on drawings by Bloemaert from American academic museums, and touch on the collecting of these works as well as their pedagogical uses as they continue to serve as educational tools in the classroom today. 




A specialist in seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish art, Elizabeth Nogrady is the Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Academic Programs at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College. She received her Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where she wrote her dissertation on Utrecht master Abraham Bloemaert. Subsequent publications on the artist include a catalogue essay for the 2012 exhibition The Bloemaert Effect: Colour and Composition in the Golden Age held at the Centraal Museum, Utrecht, and Staatliches Museum, Schwerin. She has held the positions of Moore Fellow in the Department of Drawings and Prints at the Morgan Library & Museum; J. Clawson Mills Fellow in European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and specialist in Old Master Paintings at Christie’s, New York.


Refreshments will be served following the event. 

This event is co-hosted by the Cornell University Alumni Affairs and Development
