Joachim Pissarro, Bershad Professor of Art History and Director of the Hunter College Galleries, Hunter College, CUNY/City University of New York, will present a free lecture entitled Monet Before Monet. This lecture will take the unusual stance of looking at Claude Monet's entire pictorial career through the lens of the artist's caricatural production.

Focusing on Monet's beginning as a graphic artist, as a producer of lines, graphs and glyphs, the lecture will address the artist's continuous exploration of painting as a form of writing and as an expansion of the act of singing. Joachim Pissarro will examine Monet's very distinct signatures, rich with meanings and associations, and seek to demonstrate that these signatures embody his whole act of painting.
