The Artist at Home: Lecture 1 – Dahlov Ipcar and the Zorach Family Legacy

November 02, 2011
Wednesday, 5:30 p.m.
Farnsworth Auditorium
This three-part series will explore the homes and artistic lives of three of Maine’s treasured artists: Dahlov Ipcar (b. 1917), Bernard Langlais (1923-1977) and Jonathan Fisher (1768-1847). Each artist lived most of their lives in Maine and suffused their immediate living environments with their rich imaginative lives. Ipcar, Langlais, and Fisher’s homes all reflect their unique and multi-dimensional artistic personalities—blends of whimsy and functionality—ranging from monumental wooden animals to handmade furniture, hand-painted murals to fine prints.
Lecture 1 – Dahlov Ipcar and the Zorach Family Legacy
Lecture by Jane Bianco, Assistant Curator, Farnsworth Art Museum
Beginning in the 1920s artists Marguerite and William Zorach summered with their children, Dahlov and Tessim, at their Robinhood Farm on Georgetown Island. There they created a riot of movement, pattern and color that extended from their paintings, sculpture and textile art into the three-dimensional spaces of their home. As a grown woman living in her own house nearby, their daughter Dahlov Ipcar possessed a similar talent for unselfconscious expression. An imaginative painter and author, Ipcar shares with her parents a talent for recognizing what is meaningful in her world, thus merging art and family life.
