Curator’s Talk | Whistler to Cassatt: The Making of an Exhibition

with Dr. Timothy Standring, Curator Emeritus, Denver Art Museum

Fri, Jul 8 | 6:30–7:30pm

Leslie Cheek Theater

Dr. Standring discusses the challenges he and a team of colleagues faced over the past five years to present this groundbreaking exhibition about American painters in France. Why did many American artists turn to France for their training during the years between the American Civil War and the outbreak of World War I? Why did some American artists such as James McNeill Whistler, John Singer Sargent, and Mary Cassatt find life as expats preferable to returning stateside to seek their fame and fortune?
