Williamstown, Massachusetts—Take a closer look at the Clark Art Institute’s collection during the Institute’s Looking and Lunching program on Tuesday, November 14 at 12 pm. Looking and Lunching participants join in a half-hour discussion focusing on one work from the collection, followed by continued discussion over lunch with the presenter and fellow art lovers. In this month’s talk, “Monet’s Holland,” Jay A. Clarke, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawing, and Photographs, discusses Claude Monet’s oil painting Tulip Fields at Sassenheim and its connection to the artist’s works on paper.

Looking and Lunching is free with gallery admission. Plan to arrive early to pre-order and purchase your meal from Café 7, or bring your own lunch.
