Event Details

Educated in law and art history, French scholar Vanessa Badré uses well-known works of art to contemplate the creative processes of master artists—including da Vinci, Manet, van Gogh, Picasso, and Duchamp—arguing that masterpieces are never completely new, rather they are a collection of prior efforts and existing designs. In a lively dialogue, Badré helps her audience see how great artists were keen on recycling, with a twist, and reassess the opportunity for creativity in our own work today. In partnership with the DC Chapter of the French Chamber of Commerce.
