Sena Jeter Naslund Author Talk at the UMFA @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts

New York Times bestselling author Sena Jeter Naslund will give a talk at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts as part of the Utah Humanities Book Festival. Naslund’s latest novel, The Fountain of St. James Court; or, Portrait of the Artist as an Old Woman, explores the transformative power of art, history, and love in the lives of creative women; at the center of the book is the story of renowned nineteenth-century portraitist Élisabeth Vigée-Le Brun, a survivor of the French Revolution and Marie Antoinette’s favorite painter. The UMFA has two Vigée-Le Brun paintings in its permanent collection, which will be on temporary, special display together after the 7pm talk.
