Works on Paper: Drawn ecologies

August 2 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

John Ruskin, Sunset over the Mountains, c. 1845, Watercolor and gouache with graphite on beige wove paper. Gift of the Manton Art Foundation in memory of Sir Edwin and Lady Manton, 2007. The Clark Art Institute
John Ruskin

Along with the Clark’s summer exhibition of contemporary art, Humane Ecology: Eight Positions, Lunde Fellow Sarah Grandin discusses eight drawings that face and frame the natural world.

From Claude’s idyllic valleys to Homer’s treacherous shorelines, to Degas’ morbid fox study to Bonheur’s stately bovine portraits, the selected works chart the breadth of artist’s positions vis-à-vis their environments and cohabitants.

Visit the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, which houses the Clark’s collection of more than 6,500 prints, drawings, and photographs. Each week, discover a unique selection of rarely exhibited works on paper with a member of the curatorial department. Offered Wednesdays from 1–1:30 pm in August.

The talk is ree and open to the public; capacity is limited to twenty visitors on a first-come, first-served basis. The Manton Study Center for Works on Paper is located next to the exhibition Printed Renaissance in the Manton Research Center.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
