Henry James on Screen
Henry James novels chronicling the passions and missteps of 19th century Americans and Europeans have been the inspiration for countless film and television adaptions over many years. This exhibition related series features three of the most successful adaptions of his works, The Golden Bowl (2000), The Portrait of a Lady (1996), and The Heiress (1949).
