Elizabeth Korn, Provocative Woman Artist: Pop and Puckish Classicism

Sarah Lynn Henry will offer a talk about Elizabeth Korn (1900-1979) artist and her work, presently on view at the Voelker Orth Museum. Korn’s evocative assemblages and prints of the 1970s combine classical imagery with found objects and striking forms. The artist trained in Germany early in the 20th century, emigrated in the 1930s, taught, illustrated books, and created new work well into her 70s. The presentation is followed by a reception.

Sara Lynn Henry is Professor of Art History, Emerita, and N.E.H. Distinguished Teaching Professor of Humanities. Currently she is an independent curator and art writer concerned with art, nature and science matters; also with the contemporary East-West aesthetic dialogue. As a scholar she has published extensively on Paul Klee.
