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.
