Closing Day Panel Discussion
On Sunday, October 2, The Hyde Collection will offer an exciting Closing Day Panel Discussion, designed to coincide with the final opportunity to view its blockbuster summer exhibition, Dürer & Rembrandt: Master Prints from the Collection of Dr. Dorrance Kelly. The program begins at 2 pm in the Museum's Helen Froehlich Auditorium, and it will be immediately followed by a reception in the Art Studio, where the public can meet the experts and enjoy refreshments.
Moderated by The Hyde's Director, Erin Coe, the talk will feature Catherine Bindman, an editor and art critic specializing in prints; Armin Kunz, print expert and director of C.G. Boerner, LLC in New York City; and Jonathan Canning, Curator at The Hyde. The panel will discuss Rembrandt, Dürer, the art market, and issues associated with collecting Old Master prints.
Dürer & Rembrandt attracted more than 6,000 visitors to The Hyde this summer, and it received glowing reviews from the public and the press. The exhibition features 29 engravings and woodcuts from Dürer (1471-1528), 35 etchings by Rembrandt (1606-1669) and 18 printed works by their contemporaries from Dr. Dorrance Kelly's private collection. Dr. Kelly is a Connecticut-based collector who also has extensive collections of early 20th century American artists, Currier & Ives lithographs, and John James Audubon's The Birds of America. He turned his attention to collecting Old Master prints four years ago, working with Armin Kunz to develop an impressive collection in a short period of time.
Kunz earned a Master of Arts from Freie Universität Berlin, and has worked as director at Artemis Fine Arts, as managing partner and director of art dealership at C.G. Boerner, and has had fellowships at major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Bindman has been a curator in the departments of prints and drawings at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, as well as an editor at Art on Paper magazine. She also writes and edits catalogs for print dealers and museums.
Canning oversees The Hyde’s permanent collection of nearly 4,000 works. His expertise includes European Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque art. Before joining The Hyde, Canning was senior curator at the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) and curator of the Martin D’Arcy, S.J. Collection in Chicago, Illinois. He has a master's degree in philosophy from Columbia University, New York; a Master of Arts in Art History from the University of Delaware; and a Bachelor of Arts from the Courtauld Institute at the University of London.
