Join The University Club for an evening to remember—and perhaps discover—the introspective works of François Fiedler (1921-2001). François Fiedler was the youngest and least understood of the legendary Maeght school of painters discovered during the proliferation of 20th Century European art. Discovered by Joan Miró, Fiedler’s works were regularly featured alongside those of Matisse and Picasso. Fiedler’s complex and brilliantly layered pieces take you deep inside both the mind and the soul of the artist. Known for his instinctual and straightforward approach, his own words best summarize his method: “The canvas is itself the palette.”
Comments and brief discussion will be presented by Ariel Plotek, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The San Diego Museum of Art, and by Carolee Bodie, trustee of the private François Fiedler San Diego collection.
