Encouraging American Genius and Other Tales from the Front
Arts & Culture

On this enlightening evening of art and history, join Sarah Cash, Bechhoefer Curator of American Art, as she presents some of the highlights, discoveries, and behind-the-scenes stories documented in the Corcoran's new book and online catalogue, Corcoran Gallery of Art: American Paintings to 1945. This extensive volume and searchable database represent the first catalogue to be published in over 40 years for the Corcoran's distinguished collection of historic American paintings. The talk will trace the collection from its origin in the private holdings of Washington banker and philanthropist William Wilson Corcoran to the establishment of his namesake museum. A light reception and book signing follow the talk. To purchase a copy of the catalogue, please visit http://shop.corcoran.org/products/corcoran-gallery-of-art-american-paintings-to-1945
