Art Chat Weekly: Chords of Color – Postponed
Jun 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Art Chat Weekly: Chords of Color - Postponed @ Zoom
This program has been postponed to July 9. Many American artists experimented with color theories in the early 20th century. Robert Henri, John Sloan, and George Bellows adopted the musically inspired color palettes of Hardesty Maratta around 1910. Their friends Charles and Alice Beach Winter built on Maratta’s system, creating stunning chromatic charts in the Museum’s archives.
