10 A.M. “‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh
Maier Museum of Art
“‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh - "Lying Truemen, Truthful Liars: Convergences of Fact, Fiction, and Truth," Set against a backdrop of armed conflict and grounded in the central argument of Sir Philip Sidney’s The Defence of Poesie, 1581, this session juxtaposes the philosopher’s approach to reporting events, interpreting facts, and communicating precepts with the approaches of the historian and artist. Among others, paintings by Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, and Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze illustrate this presentation. Lecture at 10:30 a.m.; doors open at 10:00 a.m. for refreshments.

4:30 P.M. 'Recent Acquisitions: Prints by Robert Kipniss,’ Opening Reception
Maier Museum of Art
'Recent Acquisitions: Prints by Robert Kipniss,’ Opening Reception - This exhibit is comprised of a group of prints by Robert Kipniss that were recently given to the Maier Museum of Art by James F. White, who has collected Kipniss’ work since he was a young adult. After an almost random discovery of the artist, Mr. White also discovered that they lived close to one another, and ultimately they established a friendship. Kipniss, whose parents were commercial artists, intended to be a poet, but devoted himself to painting, once he realized one could get college credits for art classes. He became a printmaker later, and his attention to light and dark is well suited to the mezzotint in particular. In addition to 20 prints, Mr. White also donated a copper plate of one of the works, in order to show something of the process of creating a print. In the catalogue for the exhibition Regard at his San Francisco gallery, Rowland Weinstein said, “It is impossible to mistake a Kipniss for something else.” The artist puts it this way: “Seeing provokes feelings, if you are open to feeling something.” Reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided

10 A.M. “‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh
Maier Museum of Art
“‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh - "Calliope Rising: From Epic Banality to the Banally Epic," In the first part of King Henry IV (V, iv, 3046-48), the mortally wounded Hotspur laments, “O, I could prophesy,/But that the earthy and cold hand of death/Lies on my tongue.” Evoked by wars and rumors of wars, the urge to cry out, whether in rage, despair, exultation, hope, defies the curb. Several different treatments of the Battle of Issus support this session. Lecture at 10:30 a.m.; doors open at 10:00 a.m.

10 A.M. “‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh
Maier Museum of Art
“‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh - War and the Creative Impulse: Searching for Sense in the Senseless “When war is declared, it will be impossible to restrain the poets. Rhyme remains the most effective drum” (Jean Giraudoux, La Guerre de Troie n'aura pas lieu, 1935). This lecture posits danger and destruction as muses inspiring the eye, hand, and voice of the artist at war, whether at work on the frontline or homefront, in the ghetto or death camp. Joe Rosenthal’s Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima and Ugo Giannini’s drawings of the Normandy D-Day Landing are among the works at issue in this lecture. Lecture at 10:30 a.m.; doors open at 10:00 a.m. for refreshments.

10 A.M. “‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh
Maier Museum of Art
“‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh - "Memorials on the Field and in the Square: Ploughshares, Swords, and Effigies," Among the earliest examples of historical art, the Palette of King Narmar (c. 3150 BC) is a war memorial, as is the Victory Stele of Naram-Sin (c. 2200 BC). The practice of memorializing both victory and defeat, sacrifice and service has persisted throughout human history; so has the concomitant controversy that attaches itself to most memorials long before they materialize on the ground. This presentation emphasizes the sculpture of Charles Keck, Moses Ezekiel, Frederick William MacMonnies, Arthur Ivone, and Ernest Moore Viquesney. Lecture at 10:30 a.m.; doors open at 10:00 a.m. for refreshments.

10 A.M. “‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh
Maier Museum of Art
“‘Once More unto the Breach:’ The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight” Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh - "Posters, Postcards, Pin-ups, and Put-downs: Popular Propaganda Art of World War I," From the last quarter of the fifteenth century onward, German printers were preeminent in terms of the range, speed, quantity, and quality of the items they produced. By the turn of the twentieth century, improvements in color lithography, photography, and standardized postcard sizes and mailing costs ensured that Germany’s pre-war dominance of the industry would persist as did the appetite for German paper goods throughout Europe and North America. Though examples of propaganda art from all sides of the battle lines are legion, most dealt with in this session have their origins in Germany, Austria, and France. Lecture at 10:30 a.m.; doors open at 10:00 a.m. for refreshments.
