The Leonard A. Lauder Cubist Collection: A Conversation with Emily Braun and Pepe Karmel
In 2013, Leonard Lauder announced the promised gift of several dozen Cubist artworks to the Metropolitan Museum. Featuring masterworks by Picasso, Braque, Léger, and Gris, the extraordinary collection is temporarily on view at the Met until February 16, 2015. IFAR's program is a rare opportunity to see and hear Mr. Lauder's curator, Emily Braun, discuss with another noted art historian of the Cubist period, Pepe Karmel, how this great collection was built, focused, refined, and expanded over a period of more than 30 years.
