Hear Bank of America curator Jennifer S. Brown, Ph.D., discuss the dissemination of Impressionism from its French roots into the American idiom and how Impressionism led to a reinterpretation of American landscape painting. She will also explore regional art colonies that played a role in the development of American Impressionism. Brown will conclude her talk by sharing insights about the Bank of America Art in our Communities Program, which was established in 2009 to share the company’s art collection.
This lecture complements the Four Arts’ exhibition, In a New Light: American Impressionism 1870–1940.
