In 1863, a group of artists in New York City banded together to revolutionize the practice of art. Influenced by John Ruskin, the most important art critic of the Victorian era, they dedicated themselves to his directive to record the natural world. Join us for a joint lecture on the extraordinary, but short-lived, American Pre-Raphaelite movement.
Linda S. Ferber, museum director emerita and senior art historian at the New-York Historical Society, will speak about the small group of artists identified as American Pre-Raphaelites in Who Were the American Pre-Raphaelites?
Barbara Dayer Gallati, curator emerita at the Brooklyn Museum, will address the meaning of their works in Thoughts on Canvas: American Pre-Raphaelite Iconography.San Antonio Museum of Art (john_s_auditorium)
