“Moran and Chase: Two 19th Century American Masters”

September 21, 7 pm8:30 pm.

The Atelier at Flowerfield welcomes back Neill Slaughter for another Zoom lecture: “Moran and Chase: Two 19th Century American Masters”, Thursday, September 21st at 7PM

Join Professor Emeritus Neill Slaughter to learn about how an English born artist helped convince Congress to declare Yellowstone our first National Park. And, how the foremost art teacher in NYC, in the late 19th century, decided to inaugurate the first plein-air painting summer school in America in Southampton NY.

One artist accompanied a government surveying expedition to Yellowstone and was greatly inspired by the landscape. His pencil and watercolor field sketches captured the grandeur while documenting the natural features of the Yellowstone region, eventually leading to a large painting that was critical to the establishment of Yellowstone National Park in 1872.

One artist’s success as a teacher at the Art Students League and the Brooklyn Art Association led to an invitation to venture out to eastern Long Island to inaugurate the first plein-air painting summer school in America in the Shinnecock Hills of Southampton NY.

To learn more, please attend this art history lecture on two of the most famous artists of the late 19th century and early 20th century presented by Professor Emeritus Neill Slaughter on September 21st, 2023 at 7PM.
