Robert Flynn Johnson, Curator Emeritus of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

Robert Flynn Johnson, a collector, and former curator will discuss his passion for Degas and his approach to collecting the works featured in Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist exhibition. Johnson notes that it is “the ability to be curious that is the crucial element in the makeup of a true collector —the ability to ask questions, to learn, and to get answers regarding works of art that catch your eye and move your emotions.”
