Citizen Lane (2018) is an innovative mix of documentary and drama that delivers a vivid and compelling portrait of Hugh Lane, one of Europe’s most prolific collectors of modern art. The film follows the long-running campaign to recover thirty-nine great Impressionist paintings, including Monet, Renoir, and Manet, unwittingly left to the National Gallery London. Several historians help tell the story, including Morna O’Neill, an associate professor of art at Wake Forest University. O’Neill is author of the new book Hugh Lane: The Art Market and the Art Museum, 1893–1915. She will introduce the film and host a post-screening Q&A.
Ticket includes admission to Hopper to Pollock.
