The Robert Giard Foundation Invites You to a Talk on George Platt Lynes at the Leslie-Lohman Museum

Robert Giard boardmember Allen Ellenzweig will speak about the life and work of George Platt Lynes at the Leslie-Loham Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art on Wednesday November 18th from 6-7pm, with reception to follow.

"Allen Ellenzweig will offer portraits of the amazing cast of characters who peopled Lynes’ relatively short but exciting life (1907-1955), including Gertrude Stein, Jean Cocteau, Lincoln Kirstein, Katherine Anne Porter, Marianne Moore, and the PaJaMa photography collective (Paul Cadmus, Jared French, and Margaret French). Ellenzweig will also discuss all the major genres in which Lynes excelled: celebrity portraiture, ballet images, Surreal imaginings from Greek mythology, fashion photography, and, most especially, pictures of the male nude."

Event sponsors: The Robert Giard Foundation, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay andLesbian Art, and the George Platt Lynes Foundation.
