Marco Simone Bolzoni
Celebrated as the most notable portrait and landscape painter of Georgian England, Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) was also a brilliant and experimental draftsman. In this lecture, Marco Simone Bolzoni, Moore Curatorial Fellow and curator of the exhibition Thomas Gainsborough: Experiments in Drawing, will investigate the unorthodox means and materials used by the artist in his quest to capture the beauty of the English countryside.
The exhibition Thomas Gainsborough: Experiments in Drawing will be open for program attendees.
$15; free for members and students with a valid ID. Tickets include free admission for the day of the program.
