John Singleton Copley: Translator of Historical Story and Heroic Character into Pictorial Form

Tuesday, October 3, 2023

John Singleton Copley was ‘the’ portrait painter of the American Revolution during the Romantic period of art history. He captured the shrewdness of character of our iconic American forefathers and foremothers in pairing the grand portraiture of English style with the exacting authentic detail of his Dutch contemporaries. His portraits conveyed “the plain, exulted vision” of the young Republic in search of a style in which antiquity was American’s destiny. This program will survey the life and works of the American painter of portraits and historical subjects, widely considered the finest artist of colonial America. Presented by Professor Karri Fritz-Klaus of Cornerstone History Symposium. Join us for the first lecture in a five part series “The Great Awakening: Painters of America.” Mark your calendars for all five presentations from October through February (10/3, 11/7, 12/5, 1/9, 2/6). All programs begin at 6:30 p.m. Free to attend. No registration required.
