Nathan Kernan; Fairfield Porter (American, 1907–1975), Sketch for a Portrait of Jimmy Schuyler, ca. 1962, Oil on canvas. Gift of the Estate of Fairfield Porter. Alicia Longwell.


Talk: Nathan Kernan and Alicia Longwell on James Schuyler

FRIDAY NIGHTS LIVE!

January 29, 5 pm - 6 pm


Join Alicia Longwell and Nathan Kernan, who is currently writing a biography of poet James Schuyler to be published by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, for an online live-stream conversation about the friendship of Poet James Schuyler and Fairfield Porter.

As the editor of The Diary of James Schuyler (Black Sparrow Press, 1997) and through his in depth knowledge of the poet’s letters and writings, Kernan brings a unique understanding of Schuyler’s life and work. In his talk with Longwell, he will share fresh insights into the friendship between Schuyler and Porter that lasted throughout the poet’s career. “Jimmy,” as Schuyler was universally known, was the youngest and last to join the group known as the New York School of Poets that included John Ashbery, Barbara Guest, Kenneth Koch, and Frank O’Hara—all of whom were in Porter’s inner circle and frequented his home in Southampton. Paintings by Porter illustrate the synergy among the artists and writers through intimate scenes in the Porter household and portraits inspired by his guests, such as Sketch for a Portrait of Jimmy Schuyler, 1962.
