Event Details

Date: November 11, 2021
Time: 6:00 pm


Via Zoom

The Greenwich Historical Society partners with the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadd’s Ford, Pennsylvania to present a unique virtual curator’s discussion, inspired by two fall exhibitions positioning American Impressionism as a national phenomenon that reached its strongest height as an expression of regional attachment. Amanda C. Burdan, Curator at the Brandywine River Museum of Art, Lisa N. Peters, independent scholar and curator of Life and Art: The Greenwich Paintings of John Henry Twachtman; and Scott Shields, Associate Director and Chief Curator at the Crocker Art Museum, will each offer a perspective into various facets of American Impressionism, ranging from the shores of Connecticut to the Pacific coast of California.

Presented in partnership with the Historic Artist’s Homes and Studios program, this event accompanies the exhibition America’s Impressionism: Echoes of a Revolution, on view at the Brandywine Museum of Art from October 9, 2021 to January 9, 2022 and Life and Art: The Greenwich Paintings of John Henry Twachtman, on view at the Greenwich Historical Society from October 6, 2021 to January 9, 2022.
