Willy Pogany was a Hungarian-born artist known primarily for his fairy tale-like illustrations in more than one hundred books from the first half of the twentieth century. He also produced the covers for a number of magazines and created set designs for the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Hollywood films, and the Ziegfield Follies. Here in Sarasota, he is most known for the ceiling paintings in several rooms in Ca d’Zan.
In this Conversation, Ron McCarty, Keeper of Ca d’Zan, will discuss Pogany’s work in Ca d’Zan, and Elisa Hansen, Head of Library Services, will present examples of illustrations by the artist from books in The Ringling’s Art Library Special Collection.
Less formal that a lecture presentation, Conversations are designed to be programs where staff and guests can share research projects or topics of special interest. All Conversations take place in the Chao Lecture Hall - please remember to allow extra time to walk or take a tram to the Center for Asian Art.
