A Scandalous Painting
Patricia Junker / Ann M. Barwick Curator of American Art
Rarely seen, and by an artist you’ve never heard of, Rudolf Zallinger’s Northwest Salmon Fishing of 1941 documents a Seattle scandal in the form of a Renaissance morality play. This work’s cleverness and technical brilliance argue for the elevation of this long forgotten work to masterpiece status.
Lectures are held the third Wednesday of the month at the Seattle Art Museum. Doors open at 6:30 pm for Happy Hour in the South Hall where you can enjoy complimentary wine. Curator talks begin at 7 pm in Plestcheeff Auditorium.
