In this lecture, ArtScapades will discuss the loosely knit group of artists based in New York City around the turn of the 20th Century, who are known for their gritty urban subject matter, dark palette, and gestural brushwork. This lecture will explore the lives and works of important artists of the period including the founder of the group, Robert Henri, as well as William Glackens, and John Sloan.

Robin Hoffman (left) and Jodi Stiffelman (right), 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 thirteenth season at New Canaan Library.
