Susan Behrends Frank, curator at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., will present a free lecture titled Duncan Phillips's Modern Vision to inaugurate the special exhibition, "A Modern Vision: European Masterworks" from The Phillips Collection.

Established in Washington, D.C., at the end of World War I by the young collector Duncan Phillips (1886-1966), The Phillips Collection has always been dedicated to the idea of modernism as a dialogue between the past and the present. A pioneer in many ways, Phillips had a keen enthusiasm for the art of his time. Relying on his eye for great talent and potential, he assembled a world-class collection that would be "an American Prado." Dr. Frank's lecture will provide insights into the evolution of Phillips's eye and his determination to create in the nation's capital an "experiment station" for modernism.
