Online registration for this lecture has closed. Tickets are available for purchase at the front desk.


Organizing curator for the internationally acclaimed exhibition Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity, Gloria Groom discusses the fascinating relationship between art and fashion. In an effort to capture modern life on canvas, artists unwittingly documented fashion development and trends in the emerging style capital of Paris. An expert in French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, especially the work of artists Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard, Groom is Chair of European Painting and Sculpture and Mary Winton Green Curator at the Art Institute of Chicago. She has published extensively in exhibition catalogues, including Caillebotte: Urban Impressionist; Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity; and Van Gogh’s Bedrooms.
