Description

Among many art, music and literature lovers, particularly devotees of Modernism, the expatriate community in France during the Jazz Age represents a remarkable convergence of genius in one place and period—one of the most glorious in history. Drawn by the presence of such avant-garde figures as Joyce and Picasso, artists and writers fled the censorious cultures of their homes in China, Russia and the United States to head for the free-wheeling scene in Paris, where they made contact with rivals, collaborators, and a sophisticated audience of collectors and patrons. The outpouring of boundary-pushing novels, paintings, ballets, music, and design was so profuse that it belies the brevity of the era (1918–1929). Among them was the fascinating and supremely talented painter Pan Yu Liang, the first woman from China selected for a scholarship at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. She joined an elite cadre of Chinese intellectuals already in Paris, including Xu Bei Hong, Fu Lei and Zhou Enlai. This talk will frame her achievement as an artist and teacher, including her tempestuous return to teach in Nanjing and Shanghai, with stories of other notable talents in the creative community of Paris between the wars.

Speaker:

Charles A. Riley II, PhD, is the director of the Nassau County Museum of Art and a professor at Clarkson University. He is the author of the recently published book Free as Gods: How the Jazz Age Re-invented Modernism (University Press of New England), which includes a chapter on Pan's life in Paris, as well as 31 other books and numerous articles for such magazines as Art & Auction, Art & Antiques and Fortune. He has curated exhibitions in Taiwan (at the Chimei Museum), Berlin, Amsterdam and New York, and is a regular art critic reviewing for the web site hamptonsarthub. His next book, Rodin and his Circle, will be published in Taiwan simultaneously in Chinese and English.
