Lecture Series Speaker: Roger Boulet | Saturday, October 13, at 2 pm
Join independent curator and author Roger Boulet for the next talk in our lecture series, which is held in conjunction with the exhibition A Cultivating Journey: The Herman H. Levy Legacy.
This event is complimentary with gallery admission, and FREE for members. It is open to the public to attend.
A Cultivating Journey through Landscape: This talk will focus on the depiction of landscape in various works in the exhibition “A Cultivating Journey,” and how they show the evolution of landscape through three centuries of European art. The talk will take the form of the tour of the exhibition, with a particular emphasis on the changing approach to landscape in the 19th century by such lesser known artists such as Bertin, Michel, Caillebotte, and better known ones such as Courbet, Monet and Pissarro.
