Zoom Webinar

Be the first alumni and friends to join Andrew C. Weislogel, the Seymour R. Askin, Jr. ’47 Curator, Earlier European and American Art, at the Johnson for an in-depth look at the Museum’s charming new acquisition, a gift of Alan B. Harris, Class of 1953, and Elizabeth Heekin Harris.

Andy will discuss Thomas Gainsborough (1727–1788), the most important British portraitist and landscape painter of the eighteenth century, his technique, his times, and his friends. Learn what a “fancy picture” is, and ponder current ideas about the identity of this beguiling little boy.
