Annie Cohen Solal on Charlie Rose, Sept. 15, 2010

Charlie Rose interviews Annie Cohen Solal, French author who will be visiting the University Art Museum this coming Tuesday, October 12, about her new biography of her friend Leo Castelli, the New York art dealer who helped to create and shape the Pop and Minimalist movements in American art.

View the interview here.

Rose previously interviewed Cohen Solal in 2001 about Painting American, her book on the rise of American art in New York City, and how it came to displace Paris as the center of the art world. Cohen Solal conducted much of her research for that book as cultural attache of the French Embassy under the tutelage of Leo Castelli.
