Join Curator Sarah E. Boehme for a special Insights Lunch & Look: Emerald Pool, Yellowstone on Friday, April 12, 2019 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Boehme will examine John Henry Twachtman’s painting Edge of the Emerald Pool, Yellowstone. Her slide talk will explore how Twachtman, an American Impressionist artist, responded to the unique landscape of Yellowstone National Park. Insight into the lives of the artist and the original patron will give context. The program will provide opportunities for sharing insights about visiting Yellowstone.
“When Twachtman’s Edge of the Emerald Pool, Yellowstone came to the Stark Museum of Art in 2006, it seemed a bit unusual because Twachtman was not known as a western artist. Also, his interpretation of the landscape was not ordinary. In this talk, we will look at how Twachtman fits in the story of the West. The subject also gives us the chance to talk about Yellowstone and what it means,” said Sarah Boehme.
After the talk, attendees will have an opportunity to view the painting Edge of the Emerald Pool, Yellowstone.
Participants are welcome to bring their own brown bag lunch. Coffee service will be provided throughout the presentation.
Insights Lunch & Looks and Lectures are a special series presented by Curator Sarah E. Boehme and guest speakers on subjects related to the Stark Museum of Art’s collection. This series provides visitors the opportunity to engage deeply with artists and works of art in the collection.
