Things To Do

Winslow Homer: Man vs. Sea

Date/Time

Sep 25, 2018
07:30 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

From Southport Harbor to Manifest Destiny, experience America’s journey flinging off the tip of the brush of America’s greatest nautical master, Winslow Homer. Join Fairfield University professor Philip Eliasoph on a richly visual journey and witness how Homer depicted an emerging sense of national identity for 19th century America. Professor Eliasoph will describe how Homer’s majestic nautical scenes crystallize industrial age values and virtues of courage, endurance, and individualism.

About the speaker:
Dr. Eliasoph has published many books and catalogs on American painting, reassessing the careers of many “lost generation” midcentury social and magic realist painters. He was appointed in 1975 as the first full-time art historian to join Fairfield’s faculty department. For the past 22 years he has served as moderator/host of the university’s popular Open Visions Forum town hall series at the Quick Center. Dr. Eliasoph is an elected member of the Association Internationale des Critiques d’Art, UNESCO’s art critic organization based in Paris. Since 2009 he is the consulting curator at Southport Galleries.
