Curator Crunch: Cuts like a knife! The real Lucretia

March 11: 12:15- 12:50 pm. Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553) was one of the most influential artists in 16th-century Germany, and one of the most important artists of the Northern Renaissance. Cranach’s painting “Lucretia” (c. 1530) was titled “Young Woman” before it was cleaned in 1969, which revealed the image of the tip of a knife blade at the bottom of the work. The knife completely changed the meaning of the work, and immediately went from an unknown woman to a great historic character.

Documentary: Searching for Emily

March 12: 7:00 pm. A sole filmmaker trails an artist singularly transfixed by a Canadian icon. Manon Elder paints a beautiful young Emily Carr that no one has ever given you before. Lured back to the source 100 years later by the photographs of T’anuu, Elder retraces Carr’s journey into the sacred wilderness of Haida Gwaii.
