Paul Verlaine on Display: The Mise-en-scène of a Derelict Poet in Fin-de-Siècle French Paintings and Photographs
Join us with Dr. Elizabeth Emery, Professor Modern Languages and Literatures, Montclair State University.
Paul Verlaine on Display will examine a series of photographs, engravings, and paintings of the French poet taken at bars and cafés in the 1890s in order to reassess his involvement in their production. Were these works, in which he slouches in front of a glass of absinthe, as “shattering” and “tragic” as they are now said to be? To what extent did Verlaine collaborate in the shaping of his own image?
The lecture is free and begins at 6.30 pm at the Dahesh Museum of Art Gift Shop located at 145 Sixth Avenue, on the corner of Dominick Street, one block south of Spring Street.
