Horology in Art

Horology in Art
Expanding on his popular series of articles in Watch & Clock Bulletin, Bob Frishman will present highlights from his large collection of fine art images which include a clock or watch within the scene. From Van Gogh to Dali, Titian, Homer, Magritte, Hopper, Rockwell and many more, these artists are familiar to art lovers but have not been joined together in this unique way. More than one hundred artworks from six centuries will be shown and discussed, with special attention to the depicted timepieces, in an entertaining combination of art and horology histories.

About the Presenter:
Bob Frishman, a full-time restorer of antique clocks since 1992, regularly writes and lectures on the history, science and culture of timekeeping.  He is an NAWCC Fellow and Chairman of the Ward Francillon Time Symposium Committee.  He is organizing a “Horology in Art” symposium at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts on October 26-28, 2017.  Presentations will pair art historians with clock experts for an even deeper look at relevant fine art paintings, prints, drawings, engravings and photographs.
