Art History Talk with Rebecca Albiani : Maria Prymachenko

October 26 @ 11:30 am

Maria Oksentiyivna Prymachenko (1909-1997) was born to a Ukrainian peasant family. Despite having only four years of schooling, she became a master embroiderer before shifting to watercolor and gouache. Her brilliantly colored work, inspired by fairy tales and the natural world, is a symbol of hope in modern Ukraine.

In past years Rebecca’s talks have deepened our understanding of famous artists such as Picasso and Rembrandt. This year she is going to introduce us to some fascinating artists you have may never have heard of. From a Ukrainian folk artist to a Marxist photographer to a committed portraitist out of step with the art world’s embrace of abstraction, these artists made work that continues to resonate today. We’ll also look at two painters who are acute observers of their socioeconomic landscapes, one in early 17th century Netherlands and one in today’s Chicago. Join us to enrich your knowledge of the human stories behind these entrancing artworks.
