About

Several overlapping industrial buildings crowd the right-hand side of this landscape scene, contrasting with sand dunes and blue water.

This event requires a reservation; see further details below.

Join curator Joachim Homann for an in-depth discussion about works in the exhibition American Watercolors, 1880–1990: Into the Light, on view from May 20 to August 13, 2023. Homann will share insights about the making of the exhibition, which seeks to inspire conversations and enrich today’s practitioners of watercolor.

American Watercolors, 1880–1990 presents more than a hundred compelling and rarely seen watercolors by both well-known and historically underrepresented American artists selected from the Harvard Art Museums’ deep and diverse holdings. Discover how watercolorists leveraged the imaginative and experimental capacity of the medium to create marvelously diverse works over more than a century.

Led by:
Joachim Homann, Maida and George Abrams Curator of Drawings, Division of European and American Art
