American Masterworks From the Corcoran at the National Gallery of Art

I was invited by The National Gallery of Art to give a presentation for the Winslow Homer exhibit with Chief Curator Franklin Kelly and Conservator Janet Walsh. I was also invited by The Corcoran Gallery of Art to give a gallery talk with Bechhoefer Curator of American Art Sarah Cash for the John Singer Sargent exhibit, Sargent and the Sea. I am familiar with both museum collections so it was of particular interest to me to see some of my favorite Corcoran paintings hanging at the National Gallery in a different light.

Painting Through Israel: A Different Way of Seeing

I have always traveled with my paints and sketchbook and was fortunate to live in Europe while the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship, and then later in Asia as the awardee of a grant from The Henry Luce Foundation. I have books filled with my European and Asian travel drawings and watercolors. Some of them became illustrations for magazines such as The New Yorker, Gourmet, and the New York Times.

Last Chance for Vermeer, Rembrandt and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Paintings at the Frick Museum

The Frick Museum has been a favorite of mine since I was young. When I had an internship at The Metropolitan Museum after graduating from Williams College, and I wasn't spending my time sitting on the streets of New York City drawing (which later became artwork for the New Yorker), I would spend my lunch breaks going to the Frick and looking at the collection, which I came to know by heart.
