Bela Kadar - Found painting

Author Sarah Lander Marks, writing as Lander Marks, will speak to the Jewish community of Sedona at the Sedona Public Library on November 13th, 2008 at 7pm. The subject of her talk will be Holocaust Art restitution and collecting  as told through her new book: Artist’s Proof. Marks travels and displays a painting by Hungarian artist Bela Kadar, a Nazi-proclaimed Degenerate Artist from the WWII era.  The presentation will conclude with Q&A, and a book signing. Books will be available for sale. The public is welcome.

Artist's Proof


Lander Marks will then travel to Northern Arizona University to speak to students, faculty and interested community members, at the Martin-Sperling Institute (Room 309 in the Riles Building, building 15 on the NAU map) at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, November 14. 

The Actor’s Studio-type interactive discussion will address issues of tolerance and creative expression in the arts, as a result of the mass exodus of cultural genius from Europe during WWII.  Marks will show images from the restitution and contemporary art market, including Bela Kadar, Klimt, Picasso, Chagall and Ernst.

Lander Marks has spent the past decade developing her sharp, sassy and quick-witted characters with an earnest desire to deliver unbiased information from which the reader will take away a new perspective. Recalling the circuitous tale of Artist’s Proof, Sarah offers her exclusive insights into where the missing artworks are hidden. Marks will display a painting by Bela Kadar, recently discovered to be from the Nazi-era of ‘degenerate’ contemporary art. 

The presentation will be followed by a book signing. The public is welcome.
