We are very pleased to be hosting a presentation at Villa La Pietra by the celebrated New York artist, illustrator, and author Maira Kalman, especially well known for her New Yorker covers:

She has been the author and illustrator of numerous books, including illustrations for new editions of Strunk and White’s classic Elements of Style and, very recently, Gertrude Stein’s Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. She is the author of a series of brilliant children’s books and the philosophical reflections of The Principles of Uncertainty. She has created textiles for fashion designers Isaac Mizrahi and Kate Spade and sets for choreographer Mark Morris.

Her art has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, including full retrospective shows of her work, and she recently curated at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art the small exhibit “Sara Berman’s Closet.”
