Art Talk: Dr. Alfred Frankel, author of “Artists of Old Florida, 1840-1960”

Dr. Alfred Frankel has been studying the history of art in Florida for over 40 years. His research has taken him to every major library in the state and resulted in two as-yet unpublished books, The Artists of Old Florida, 1840-1960; and A Dictionary of Florida Artists, 1840-1960. His dream has been to bring these artists and their works to the public and to revive the memory of the thousands of Florida artists, many academically trained, who spent their lives working here.

He currently has a show of his collected art works at the Tampa Museum of Art. His collection overlaps that of Arts Advocates’ Colony artists and he has written a chapter on Sarasota artists in his book.

Join us for this in depth look at Florida artists and the Sarasota Artist Colony.
