Artscapades: Artists Abroad

September 9, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Lamb Room

From American to Expatriate: The Road to Modern Art

The series begins with Artists Abroad: From American to Expatriate which looks at four American artists, Mary Cassatt, Theodore Robinson, James McNeill Whistler, and John Singer Sargent, who, despite their expatriate status, are among America’s greatest talents.  

Approximately a dozen works per artist are discussed including iconic works and those that illustrate significant trends and events in their lives and careers.


PLEASE NOTE: Elevator is out of order until further notice. Please use the main street entrance if stairs are of difficulty when attending events in the Lamb Room.

ROBIN HOFFMAN and JODI STIFFELMAN, of ArtScapades, began teaching art appreciation in 1998. They have presented at libraries and museums in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, and Florida, and are returning for their twelfth season at New Canaan Library.
