In this talk, curator Lynette Roth takes a close look at Max Beckmann’s Self-Portrait in Tuxedo (1927), examining its institutional, art historical, and cultural-political significance in order to ask the question: what can this enigmatic, nearly century-old painting by a German artist tell us today?
Lynette Roth, Daimler Curator of the Busch-Reisinger Museum and Head, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art
