Annual Sydney Lyon Jacobs Lecture in American Art


Distinguished scholar of American art Kathleen A. Foster is The Robert L. McNeil, Jr., Senior Curator of American Art and Director of the Center for American Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She is the author of “Thomas Eakins Rediscovered” and editor of “A Drawing Manual by Thomas Eakins,” both published by Yale. In her recent book “Shipwreck! Winslow Homer’s The Life Line,” Foster locates “The Life Line” within the tradition of earlier shipwreck paintings and traces how the artist was influenced by popular contemporary images of drowning, rescue, and mourning as well as the development of new life-saving technologies.

Organized by the Department of Art History at Rutgers and co-sponsored by the Zimmerli Art Museum. Free admission to lecture and reception but registration is required. RSVP to education@zimmerli.rutgers.edu.
