John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Chief Curator, Menil Drawing Institute Edouard Kopp will discuss the work of French draftsman and architect Jean-Jacques Lequeu (1757–1826), currently on view in the exhibition Jean-Jacques Lequeu: Visionary Architect, Drawings from the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Lequeu’s drawings, which range from actual government proposals to pure architectural fantasies, as well as anatomical and physiognomic studies, attest to his keen sense of observation, eclectic interests, and prolific imagination.
The Menil’s Curator Talks are discussions about a single work of art, or group of works, on view in the museum’s galleries. These programs are free and open to the public. Further information regarding accessibility and parking can be found here.
