My friend and esteemed colleague Georgia Barnhill will be presenting what I know will be a fascinating talk on Fitz Henry Lane at the Boston Athenaeum on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, from 12:00 to 1 p.m. No registration required.
From the announcement:
"In this richly illustrated talk, Georgia Barnhill sheds fresh light on the beloved American luminist painter and printmaker Fitz Henry Lane, the subject of her current exhibition at the Cape Ann Museum. Barnhill, curator emerita of graphic arts at the American Antiquarian Society, considers Lane's work within the context of his contemporaries, and explores his deep association with the Boston Athenaeum, where the artist first exhibited in 1841."
