Program Description

Event Details

This program will be delivered via Zoom and will be streamed to our Kingsley Room. If you want to watch the program from home, register here.

Austrian painter Gustav Klimt is associated with a number of artist movements including Art Nouveau and Symbolism, but in the end he developed a distinctive style all his own. Join us as we learn more about this idiosyncratic artist and explore his famous gold paintings as well as his lesser known works.

Jane Oneail is an independent scholar and holds a Master's in Art History from Boston University and a Master's in Art in Education from Harvard University. Jane is a New Hampshire native and has worked at some of the state's most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at Southern NH University. Jane owns the company Culturally Curious which delivers art appreciation programs like this one to audiences all over New England and beyond.
