The Easter-weekend Episode No. 284 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features a previously-aired conversation with curator George Shackelford.
Shackelford is the curator of “Monet: The Early Years” at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. The show features about 60 paintings from the first phase of Claude Monet’s career, from a painting Monet made in Normandy in 1858 when he was 18 years old, until 1872, when Monet lived in Argenteuil, along the Seine near Paris. The exhibition debuted last winter at the Kimbell Art Museum, where Shackelford is the museum’s deputy director. “Monet” is on view in San Francisco through May 29. The show’s beautiful catalogue was published by the Kimbell and distributed by Yale University Press. Amazon offers it for $50.
Shackelford has been on The MAN Podcast previously to discuss Gauguin, Caillebotte, and nineteenth-century French portraiture.
