Innocents Abroad: Nineteenth-Century American Painters in Europe - H. Barbara Weinberg

Innocents Abroad

H. Barbara Weinberg, Curator Emerita, The American Wing, MMA

Most leading nineteenth-century American painters sought instruction and inspiration in Europe. This series focuses on their studies abroad–in Germany, England and France–and the effect of these experiences on their art, whether they remained overseas or returned home. Today's discussion will examine artists in France (Eakins, Cassatt, and others).

Tuesday, March 11th, and Tuesday, March 25th, at 11:00am
