Art History Lecture Series: American Art from 1860 to 1900

Join Roy Ritchie, Huntington Senior Research Associate, for a four-part lecture series that examines American Art from 1860 to 1900.

Topics include a discussion of the enormous fortunes that increased the number of collectors in America, who had a major influence on American art. The class addresses the importance of Europe’s continued influence on the arts in America, in particular the Impressionist movement. Participants explore the end of the grand landscape painting tradition and the arrival of the city as a subject. The instructor discusses the emergence of such American Masters as John Singer Sargent, Thomas Eakins, and Winslow Homer.

This four-part series takes place March 22, March 29, April 5, and April 12, from 10 a.m. to noon. Registration includes all four sessions and admission to The Huntington.
