Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 International Affairs Building)

Please join us for a talk with Yuri Leving (Dalhousie University, Canada).

Joseph Brodsky was a lucky man: among the glut of talents given him was the gift of visual art as well. The Nobel Laureate never had lessons in drawing, but his sketches are distinguished by the sparseness of the malleable line, their sharp composition, and the ability to convey a mood. Professor Yuri Leving presents on his research, based on over a 300 unpublished drawings by Brodsky from different periods and varying styles and techniques.
