February 18, 2016 --Alberto Giacometti, Portrait of Herbert Lust in his Father's Topcoat, Drawing with Ballpoint Pen-- 6pm-8pm.
In the summer of 1949, at the age of 22, Herbert Lust arrived in Paris on a Fulbright scholarship to study at the Sorbonne. He was a graduate student from the University of Chicago. "I was at that time among the top scholars from the University of Chicago," Mr. Lust writes, "the youngest ever to receive the prestigious M.A. in mathematics and philosophy." Lust became an ardent collector of Alberto Giacometti, Sol Lewitt, Robert Indiana, Enrico Baj, the photographer Joel-Peter Witkin, and the surrealist artists including Hans Bellmer, among others. Mr. Lust will share with his thoughts on collecting and his personal collection.
