Opening Day Talk: New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville

Exhibition curator Dr.  Joy Heyrman will introduce Baltimore-born artist Richard Caton Woodville, in this special exhibition, the first of its kind since 1967.  The talk will explore the rich context of the artist’s work from Baltimore where he was born in 1825, to Düsseldorf, Germany where he studied in the vibrant international art community, and finally to Paris and London, where he died at the young age of thirty.  Learn about new discoveries revealed in the exhibition, the social, political and technological transformations Woodville considered, and the broad impact his paintings achieved through reproduction, for a new American audience hungry for visual imagery.

Date: 10/26/14

Time: 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

Like J.P. Morgan and other members of the Gilded Age elite, Henry Walters was an “omnivorous” collector of art. To mark the opening of From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story, Walters curator Jo Briggs, Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library and Museum, and John Ott, associate professor at James Madison University consider how discriminating purchasing cemented social relationships at the turn of the century.
