Tyler Green talks to Elizabeth Easton, curator of the exhibition Snapshot: Painters and Photography: Bonnard to Vuillard, on view at the Phillips Collection, Washington D.C. through May 6, 2012.
The curatorial statement notes that "none of the artists thought of themselves as photographers. These were private objects, often made for the same reason people use cameras to this day: to commemorate events or capture precious moments with friends or loved ones. The artists sometimes translated their photographic images directly into their work in other media, and when viewed alongside these paintings, prints, and drawings, the snapshots reveal fascinating parallels in foreshortening, cropping, lighting, silhouettes, and vantage point."
At the end of the podcast Green also interviews painter Anne Appleby, whose work is on view at Danese Gallery, New York through March 10, 2012.
