Museum Tour: American Impressionist: Childe Hassam and the Isles of Shoals
HCNH had an interesting trip to the Peabody Essex Museum on 12/1/16. Hall Weeks’77 was host to twelve members of the club and taught us about Childe Hassam’s life on Appledore Island, his landscape subjects, biology of the island, and much more. Here he is with his favorite painting in the show. Join us at our next fine arts expedition to the Currier museum and the Mt. Washington exhibit, just open
This is the first exhibition in more than 25 years to focus on Hassam's paintings of the Isles of Shoals, a group of small, rocky islands lying in the Gulf of Maine six miles off the coast of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This exhibit of Childe Hassam's paintings and the Isles of Shoals is the result of an unprecedented collaboration of research between geologists, marine scientists and curators that led to new discoveries about Hassam's paintings and artistic practice. The exhibition features more than 40 oil paintings and watercolors dating from the late 1880s to 1912.
Our group will be lead by Hal Weeks, AB'77 who was part of the team that created the exhibit.
