MEMBER EVENT: Cocktails with the Curator from the Denver Art Museum
Tuesday, February 4, 2020
Join us for a conversation and cocktails with Jennifer Henneman, one of curators of the upcoming Denver Art Museum exhibition, Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington. Featuring 60 artworks, Natural Forces will reveal connections between artistic themes and techniques used by the two acclaimed American artists. Born a generation apart, both artists succeeded in capturing the quintessential American spirit through works of art at the turn of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, an era of growing industrialization and notions of the closing of the American western frontier. Winslow Homer (1836-1910), who was considered the most original painter of his time, prospered by creating masterful depictions of the Eastern Seaboard, while Frederic Remington (1861-1909) became famous for his iconic representations of the American West. The work of these two self-taught artists continues to be celebrated as independent, innovative, and homegrown.
