Stettheimer was a New York original: a society elite who hosted an avant-garde salon in her Manhattan home, a bohemian and a flapper, a poet, a theater designer and above all an influential painter with a sharp, satirical wit.

Stephen Brown, curator at the Jewish Museum, gives a talk on Florine Stettheimer, then leads a tour of his new exhibition on Stettheimer’s work, which includes over 50 paintings and drawings, a selection of costume and theater designs, photographs and ephemera, as well as critically acclaimed poems.

This program begins with a 45-minute talk at 92Y following which the group will walk to the Jewish Museum for a private tour with the curator. Please note: The Jewish Museum is closed to the public on Wednesdays, so additional exhibitions at the museum will not be open for viewing.

Florine Stettheimer: Painting Poetry will be on view from May 5 through Sep 24 at the Jewish Museum.
