This program will focus on the Cornish Art Colony in its seminal period, from its inception in 1884 to 1916, the year of its retrospective at Dartmouth. You will discuss its place in Arcadian American Art, ranging from the Hudson River School to Maxfield Parrish (in particular) as well as view images of the artists' works.
