Art Lovers Book Club: Kenneth Clark: Life, Art and Civilisation


July 19 at 4 PM  Kenneth Clark: Life, Art and Civilisation by James Stourton

Kenneth Clark's thirteen-part 1969 television series, Civilisation, established him as a globally admired figure. He would burnish his image with two memoirs that artfully omitted the more complicated details of his life. Now, drawing on a vast, previously unseen archive, James Stourton reveals the formidable intellect and the private man behind the figure who effortlessly dominated the art world for more than half a century: his privileged upbringing, his interest in art history beginning at Oxford, his remarkable early successes.



Hosts for this Event:
The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
