Murdock Pemberton, the first art critic of The New Yorker, wrote countless exposés of museums, collections, and galleries that documented the development of American modernism. His granddaughter Sally Pemberton—who recently published a compendium of his writings—shares Murdock’s colorful stories, including his role in a public dispute between Duncan Phillips and Alfred Stieglitz. A book signing follows the lecture; copies of Portrait of Murdock Pemberton available for sale.
