An Evening With Professor Michael Farrell

Professor Farrell’s lecture will cover the art and life of Gari Melchers. Melchers was the son of German-born, Detroit-based sculptor Julius Melchers. He first studied with his father, along with another student, Albert Kahn.

speaThe younger Melcher’s talent was recognized and encouraged, and he traveled to Germany to further his studies. At the beginning of the twentieth century, three American artists shared equal fame: James Abbott McNeil Whistler, John Singer Sargent and Gari Melchers. Melchers’ renown brought him back to Detroit where he had mural commissions and painted many important members of society … including the Walkers. This illustrated lecture will examine Melchers’ career, his art and in particular, the place of Willistead Manor’s two portraits by this outstanding painter.

A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sale go to support the ongoing restoration and preservation of Willistead Manor. A tax receipt for a portion of the ticket price will be issued in the weeks following the event.
