Episode No. 250 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Yuriko Jackall and Katharine Baetjer.
Jackall is a co-curator of “Hubert Robert, 1733-1808,” a retrospective of the French artist’s drawings and paintings at the National Gallery of Art. The show features over 100 objects detailing Robert’s interest in architectural ruin, the French landscape and the major events of his day, especially the French Revolution. It is the first monographic exhibition of Robert’s work in the United States and the first anywhere since 1933.
“Hubert Robert,” which the NGA co-organized with the Louvre, will be in Washington through October 2. Jackall’s co-curators included the Louvre’s Guillaume Faroult and the NGA’s Margaret Morgan Grasselli. The exhibition catalogue was published by the NGA in association with Lund Humphries.
The second segment features an excerpt from host Tyler Green’s 2016 conversation with Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Katharine Baetjer, who recently co-organized a retrospective of Robert contemporary Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun. Images are here.
