Roberta Favis, Professor Emeritus of Art History at Stetson University, will discuss "The Ponce de Leon Studios: Artists and Salons in Florida's Gilded Age” on Feb. 5 in Flagler College’s Flagler Room.

Favis also serves as curator of the Vera Bluemner Kouba Collection, an important legacy of artworks by American Modernist Oscar Bluemner (1867-1938). She received her M.A. and Ph.D. in Art History form the University of Pennsylvania and her B.A. in Art History from Bryn Mawr College.

Favis is the author of “Oscar Bluemner: A Daughter’s Legacy” and “Martin Johnson Heade in Florida” as well as numerous catalog essays and articles on American art from the 19th to the 21st century.

The free lecture will take place at 7 p.m. in the Flagler Room at Flagler College, 74 King St.

The Favis lecture is being held in conjunction with “Planning and Painting in Paradise: The Art and Architecture of the Hotel Ponce de Leon,” an exhibition to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the opening of the Hotel Ponce de Leon being held at the College’s Crisp-Ellert Art Museum until Feb. 22.
