American realist painter Edward Hopper is known to have painted in Gloucester on five separate occasions during the summer months in the years 1912, 1923, 1924, 1926 and 1928. His earliest visit in 1912 was made in the company of fellow artist Leon Kroll. During his second visit to Cape Ann in 1923, Hopper courted the young artist Josephine Nivison. He also began working in watercolor, capturing the local landscape and architecture in loosely rendered, light filled paintings. In 1924, Hopper and Nivison who were newly married returned to Gloucester on an extended honeymoon and continued to explore the area by foot and streetcar. During his final two visits to the area, in 1926 and 1928, Hopper produced some of his finest paintings. This special walking tour will explore the neighborhood surrounding the Museum, which includes many of the Gloucester houses immortalized by Hopper’s paintings.

Presented by Avis Berman, an independent writer, art historian, and author of Rebels on Eighth Street: Juliana Force and the Whitney Museum of American Art; James McNeill Whistler; and Edward Hopper’s New York. When we consider the subject of portraits of artists, our first thoughts tend to be of likenesses painted on canvas, etched on a plate, or exposed on a negative. But equally compelling in the study of artists and why they make the images they do are those portraits deduced and composed from the examination of psychological and social motivations. This sort of portrayal based on deeper emotional currents is especially revealing in the case of the American painter and printmaker, John Sloan. Sloan could not have matured into the artist he was without the catalytic interlocking relationships he sustained with two other forceful personalities—the painters Robert Henri and John Butler Yeats. The power of these artists’ intense, transformative personal and intellectual friendships—friendships that became central experiences, opened doors to new worlds, and were precious founts of support and inspiration—does much to explain many facets of Sloan’s life and work. The three men’s association also had more general consequences for American art—it was a great influence on drawings, paintings, and prints produced by a number of outstanding artists in Sloan and Henri’s orbit. Individual tickets Members $10 / nonmembers $15 Series tickets (available at the "Three Moderns Paint Gloucester" event page) Members $25 / nonmembers $40 Three Moderns Paint Gloucester | July 23 A Portrait of Friendship | August 13 Passing Through Gloucester | October 30 For tickets or more information please call (978)283-0455 x10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. **The exhibition will be open for viewing prior to the lecture from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
When: Aug 13, 2015 7 PM in Gloucester, Massachusetts (Thu, 13 Aug 2015 19 )
Presented by Michael Lobel, Professor of Art History and Director of the MA Program in Modern and Contemporary Art, Criticism and Theory at Purchase College, State University of New York and author of Image Duplicator: Roy Lichtenstein and the Emergence of Pop Art; James Rosenquist: Pop Art, Politics and History in the 1960s; and John Sloan: Drawing on Illustration. In contrast to the urban setting of John Sloan’s most memorable Ashcan School pictures, the works the artist produced in Gloucester have generally been taken as pastoral in nature, at a remove from contemporary concerns and current events. Yet Sloan’s time in Gloucester overlapped not only with the period of his deepest political involvements, but also with the looming disruptions of World War I. This talk will consider the resonances between Sloan’s New York images and his Gloucester scenes, taking note of the political concerns that may indeed have colored his treatment of the supposedly idyllic countryside. Individual tickets Members $10 / nonmembers $15 Series tickets (available at the "Three Moderns Paint Gloucester" event page) Members $25 / nonmembers $40 Three Moderns Paint Gloucester | July 23 A Portrait of Friendship | August 13 Passing Through Gloucester | October 30 For tickets or more information please call (978)283-0455 x10 or email email@example.com. **The exhibition will be open for viewing prior to the lecture from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
