The Artists Loop with Catherine Bert- Walter Feldman 1953: A Modernist Comes to Providence

The Artists Loop with Pnina Pressburger & Guests

Catherine Bert is the owner of Bert Gallery, a Providence gallery founded in 1985 to showcase and preserve the rich tradition of the Providence School within the context of American Art. She is the visual arts advisor & curator for the Walter S. Feldman Trust for Artwork, Brown University.

Walter Feldman (1925-2017) attended Yale University, where he studied with Willem de Kooning and Josef Albers, two of the most influential modernist painters in American Art who were stylistically and philosophically polar opposites in Modernist ideology.

In 1953 Feldman came to Providence to teach at Brown University. He was a Professor in the Visual Art Department of Brown for over fifty years and created public art works in Providence, including mosaics at Temple Beth-El, Miriam Hospital, Temple Emanuel, and stained-glass windows at the Sugarman Memorial Chapel. We will discuss the artistic mood in Providence in 1953 and how Feldman contributed to the Brown University and Providence artistic communities.
