Join Judith in an illustrated talk based on her engrossing biography, Eye of the Sixties, Richard Bellamy and the Transformation of Modern Art, (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2016), Judith E. Stein brings alive this beatnik with a legendary eye who was the first to show Claes Oldenburg and James Rosenquist, Donald Judd and Dan Flavin, Mark di Suvero and George Segal, as well as Yayoi Kusama’s sculpture and Warhol’s printed money. He even brokered Yoko Ono’s first sale. “There was nobody like Bellamy. I certainly consider myself his pupil,” art dealer Leo Castelli later reflected.
