Reading Portraits: Book Signing and Talk with Posey Boicourt
Posey Boicourt will present her book Blue Tulip: an artistic adventure with painter Francois Joseph Kinsoen and his niece Adele at the Academy Art Museum on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 2:00 PM. Blue Tulip is the story of a forgotten portrait painter in the author’s family who she discovered had moved from Bruges to Paris after the French Revolution and worked in the royal circles of Europe including Napoleon’s court. Posey’s upcoming talk, accompanied by slides of the artist’s works, will be followed by a book sale and signing with half the proceeds to be donated to the Academy’s building fund. The event is free to attend.
