Most leading nineteenth-century American painters sought instruction and inspiration in Europe. This series focuses on their studies abroad–in Germany, England and France–and the effect of these experiences on their art, whether they remained overseas or returned home. Today's discussion will examine artists in England (Whistler, Sargent, and others).

Tuesday, March 25th, and Tuesday, April 8th, at 11:00am
