    The St. Cloud Friends of the Institute are excited to present Patrick Noon, Senior Curator of Paintings and the Elizabeth MacMillan Chair of the Department of Paintings at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Patrick moved to Minneapolis in 1997 and last spoke to the St. Cloud Friends in 2003. Please join us on Tuesday October 10, 2017 in the GDCC President’s Dining Room at the College of Saint Benedict from 6 - 9:30 p.m. Patrick will share with us the tales of the current special exhibit, "Eyewitness Views: Making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe". He will also bring stories about the Delacroix being purchased by the Friends in anticipation of celebrating our 100th Birthday. He has published and lectured extensively on French and British art from the 1700s and 1800s, focusing on the relationships between artists working in different countries, particularly during the Romantic era. This expertise has informed many exhibitions, including “Crossing the Channel: British and French Painting in the Age of Romanticism,” organized with the Tate Britain and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and shown at Mia in 2003, as well as the catalogues raisonnés he published in 2008/10 of the paintings and drawings of British Romantic artist Richard Parkes Bonington, who mediated the British and French schools in the 1820s. His exploration of French Romantic painter Eugène Delacroix’s influence—“Delacroix and the Rise of Modern Art”— was organized with the National Gallery in London and debuted at Mia in 2015.
