A Revolution in Color: The World of John Singleton Copley
January 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Harvard historian Jane Kamensky recovers an unknown American Revolution as seen through the eyes of Boston-born painter John Singleton Copley. Author Geraldine Brooks says, “A pleasure to read from first page to last, Jane Kamensky’s exploration of the life, work and tumultuous times of John Singleton Copley is itself a masterpiece. Like all excellent portraitists, Kamensky probes deeply into the character of her subject, as deft with the small, revealing detail as she is with the sweeping strokes of landscape and setting. Both gripping narrative history and insightful art criticism, 'A Revolution in Color' is a genre-busting tour de force.”
