Talk: Gallery Talk: The Art of Looking—19th Century Art Across the Atlantic

12:30 pm | Thu, July 13, 2017
BP Grand Entrance

American and European art shared many characteristics starting in the colonial period, and this continued in the 19th century. Explore these similarities and differences during this educator-led gallery talk as we look at portraits, sculpture, and landscape painting. What becomes clear is that in the United States, art both diverged away from and also converged with European trends. Art historian and educator Mary Lenihan leads this conversation-based tour.
