Why are there no landscape paintings in Colonial homes and how did the Hudson River School change all that? Was the Hudson River School really a “school?” How did Winslow Homer assure his privacy in Prout’s Neck, Maine? What was “Christina’s World” and what about Andrew Wyeth’s “secret model?” What did Georgia O’Keeffe say about her sexy flowers? What is the mystery of Edward Hopper? Why did Jackson Pollock say “I am Nature?” — Answers to these questions and many more in eight sessions of talks, discussions, and videos.
