ONLINE GALLERY TALK: Reckoning with History: Reframing the Impressionist Landscape
October 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
CT United States
With Carolyn Wakeman, Historian & Author
How we understand the past shapes the way we view the scenic places celebrated by Lyme Colony artists after 1900. New research and shifting perspectives shed fresh light on the lived history the painted settings evoke. The untold stories of Native Americans, African Americans, and European immigrants suggest alternative ways of seeing and framing the Impressionist landscape.
The lecture will take place virtually via GoTo Webinar and a link to access the event will be sent when participants register. The event is free but registration is required via our website.
