Join James Louie, MD ’65, Professor Emeritus of Medicine/Rheumatology at UCLA, for “The Art of Medicine Comes from Knowing Our Patients: Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Klee, Ruth Asawa.” Louie will highlight the life and work of these three artists with a focus on their rheumatic diseases—Pierre-Auguste Renoir with rheumatoid arthritis, Paul Klee with systemic sclerosis, and Ruth Asawa with lupus. Some of the artists were able to manage their diseases through the grit of their own determination, the support of family and friends, and the best medical advice and therapies available during their lives. Some used their art to express their pain and turmoil, while others preferred to ignore and transcend their pain through their art. Louie gives patients hope for coping with their rheumatic diseases by illustrating how famous artists managed.
