The Hudson Library & Historical Society continues a series of artist biographical lectures when local art historian Felicia Zavarella Stadelman presents artist Tamara de Lempicka. 

Tamara de Lempicka was a well-known portrait painter with a distinctive Art Deco style.  Art Deco, a classical, symmetrical style that reached its high point between 1925-1935, drew its inspiration from such art movements as Cubism and Futurism.  Tamara de Lempicka’s portraits encapsulated Art Deco and the glitz of the 1920’s.  She chose models from the international elite, but only if she considered them respectable enough for her to paint.  Attendees will be given an informative postcard that includes facts about the artist’s life.  Register for this free program online at or call 330.653.6658, x1010.

In the Western Reserve, Kirtland pursued his interest in horticulture, taught and practiced medicine, and was elected three times to the state legislature. Natural history was always foremost in Kirtland’s mind; many of the specimens he collected are today housed at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. A founding member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, he was the first elected member of the National Academy of Science. Dr. Daniel, a Hudson resident, is Professor Emeritus of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University and Honorary Physician at University Hospitals. Since retirement, the author has published six academic books on medical history.
