    COLUMBIA, PA: The NAWCC will present “Horology in Art” with Bob Frishman on Sunday, February 21, from 7 to 8 p.m.

    Expanding on his popular regular feature in the Watch & Clock Bulletin, Frishman will present highlights from his large collection of fine art images that include a clock or watch within the scene. From Van Gogh to Dali, Titian to Homer, and Magritte to Hopper, these artists are familiar to art lovers, but they have not been interpreted from this unique perspective. More than 100 artworks from six centuries will be shown and discussed, with special attention to the depicted timepieces, in an entertaining combination of art and horology histories.

    Frishman has been restoring antique clocks full time since 1992 and regularly writes and lectures on the history, science, and culture of timekeeping. He is an NAWCC Fellow and chairman of the Ward Francillon Time Symposium Committee. He is organizing a Symposium with the theme of “Horology in Art” at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts on October 26-28, 2017. Presentations will pair art historians with clock experts for an even deeper look at relevant fine art paintings, prints, drawings, engravings, and photographs.
