See How These Artists Captured Their Artistic Spirit at This Event
Join us for this special double lecture examining the creation of Mariano Fortuny y Marsal’s (1883–1874) Beach at Portici (1874) and William Merritt Chase’s (1849–1916) Idle Hours, 1894, on loan from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. Many comparisons can be made of these two cosmopolitan painters, Fortuny of Spain and Chase of the United States.
The two artists utilized a loose, rapid painting style akin to French Impressionism. Despite his early death, Fortuny established a popular genre of painting costumed figures set in richly ornamented settings. This fashion of painting was assumed by the younger Chase while he was studying abroad in Europe in the 1870s.
The two painters turned to more private and personal scenes in their later work, which will be the subject of this special program held in conjunction with the summer installation At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase. You can discover the bond between the artist at Meadows Museum.
