Whistler to Cassatt: American Artists in France
A Curator’s Overview of the Imminent Exhibition at the Denver Art Museum
by Timothy James Standring, Curator Emeritus, Denver Art Museum
In this engaging lecture, Dr. Timothy J. Standring, Curator Emeritus, Denver Art Museum, will explain the challenges he faced as he led a team of colleagues who worked over the past five years to present this groundbreaking exhibition on American painters in France. Why did many American artists turn to France for their training during the age of innocence between the American Civil War and the outbreak of WWI? Moreover, why did some American artists such as Whistler, Sargent and Cassatt find life as Expats preferable to returning Stateside to seek their fame and fortune? Stay tuned for an encapsulation of this exciting lost chapter of American art history.
Please note that this lecture is free to attend, but pre-registration is requested.
