The Couse Foundation presents: Virginia Couse Leavitt, "In My Grandfather's Footsteps"

Arthur Bell Auditorium


Virginia Couse Leavitt, granddaughter of early Taos painter E. Irving Couse, will present this lecture which is based on research trips she and her husband made to Europe in the 1980s. Using sketchbooks, photographs, and letters from the Couse Family Archive, the Leavitts were able to relive Couse's summer vacations spent in several French art colonies during his student years at the Academie Julian in Paris. Leavitt is an art historian who is the authority on her grandfather's work.
Tickets are $10.00 for general and $8.00 for museum members, doors open at 9:30 am.
