The Art of Portraiture: A Look Through Time

April 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

The New Canaan Museum and Historical Society welcomes ArtScapades with a lecture
that ties in with their current portrait exhibition, Portraits of New Canaan. ArtScapades will look at the history of portraiture in art. From ancient times to today, portraiture has told us fundamental truths, whoever the subject. By looking at who was portrayed, and how, we are able to gain insights into social, cultural, and political
history that no other type of painting can offer. This lecture will include a look at works by Jan van Eyck, Rembrandt, Thomas Gainsborough, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Vincent van Gogh, James McNeill
Whistler, Pablo Picasso, and Marsden Hartley, and more.
