To explore our widely popular “Monet and the Age of American Impressionism,” esteemed art historian, scholar and curator, Sarah Burns, will share unique insight regarding the important distinctions between American and European Impressionism. As an historian, Ms. Burns has tackled an array of topics with humor and scholarship, such as: 19th century art in the United States, history of photography, cartoons and caricature, female depictions in American art, consumer culture, popular art and kitsch, and American gothic themes. This event is sure to be both engaging and provocative.
