Sylvia Rhor Samaniego Moderates Discussion Between Authors of "American Workman: The Life and Art of John Kane"

Sylvia Rhor Samaniego moderates discussion between Louise Lippincott and Maxwell King, authors of the upcoming book "American Workman: The Life and Art of John Kane" on February 24th, 2022, hosted by Art Society and Literary Society. John Kane is Pittsburgh’s second most famous artist, and his sudden emergence, late in life, at the 1927 Carnegie International is legendary in the history of modern art. Maxwell King and Louise Lippincott, authors of the forthcoming book American Workman: The Life and Art of John Kane, present new research that shows how much more there is to know about his character and story. Looking closely at Kane’s life and the art reveals the many obstacles he overcame and the magnitude of his achievement.
