The Clock in the Painting: Art Lecture by Bob Frishman

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Bob Frishman of Bell-Time Clocks has been collecting fine art images which have a clock for many years. From Van Gogh to Dali, Titian, Homer, Magritte, Hopper and Rockwell, these artworks are often familiar to art lovers but have not often been viewed from this perspective. Bob will show images from the past 500 years and discuss the history of clocks. Bob has repaired, restored and sold antique clocks for more than thirty-eight years. In 1992, he founded Bell-Time Clocks, named after a Harper's Weekly engraving by Winslow Homer depicting New England mill buildings and workers. Having scaled back his repair and selling activities, he now devotes most of his time to research, writing, lecturing, and conference organizing. He created and organized the 2017 Horology in Art symposium at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
