Members Only: The Art of Jean Mannheim

June 27, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

At Home Series logo

At Home Series logoEarly Pasadena artist Jean Mannheim was one of several prominent Arroyo Seco artists who established the city as a center for the arts in the early twentieth century. Richard Reitzell, a direct descendant of the artist, will cover the breadth of his career and share examples of his broad range of subjects from landscapes to portraits. As author of From a Versatile Brush: The Life and Art of Jean Mannheim (Arroyo Publishing, 2011), Reitzell chronicles sixty years of the artist’s work and will share some of the plein-air landscapes of California’s unspoiled shorelines, valleys, mountains, and deserts. The lecture will take place at a 1882-83 farmhouse designed by George Stimson.

Program begins at 6:00 pm. All At Home programs take place at least in part outdoors. In case of rain, please consider your reservation a donation. Please note At Home events include walking and steps. Please no high heels.
