Clarice Smith Distinguished Lecture Series with Richard Lacayo

Smithsonian American Art Museum
Richard Lacayo joined Time magazine in 1984, and has been art critic there since 2003. He has written for the Sunday New York Times and Connoisseur and co-authored the book Eyewitness: 150 Years of Photojournalism. Lacayo has interviewed and profiled numerous artists and architects, including David Hockney, Damien Hirst, Martin Puryear, Richard Serra, and Frank Gehry. In his talk, Lacayo will confront the widespread perception of the artist flourishing and dying early-e.g., Caravaggio, Modigliani, Raphael, Van Gogh-when more commonly, the major figures of art history lived into ripe old age. Artists including Matisse, Michelangelo, Monet, O'Keeffe, Picasso, and Renoir worked into their 80s or 90s. Lacayo questions whether the later work of artists is fundamentally different from what they did earlier and how older artists come to terms with aging and mortality.
