From Homer to Hopper

There is an exhibition at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester that you may like to make plans to view, it's "From Homer to Hopper: American Watercolor Masterworks from the Currier Museum of Art." Here's the Currier's description:
March 6, 2010 - June 7, 2010

This exhibition features extraordinary works by such nationally known masters as Winslow Homer, Maurice Prendergast, Childe Hassam, Rockwell Kent, Edward Hopper, Charles Burchfield, John Marin, Charles Sheeler, Stuart Davis, and Andrew Wyeth.

Drawn from the impressive collection the Currier has built over its 80-year history, these watercolors have not been exhibited as a group for two decades because of the fragile nature of the medium. The exhibition includes about seventy five works that trace the history of watercolor over the last 175 years. A strong representation of work by important New Hampshire artists ranges from portraits by nineteenth-century itinerant painter Joseph H. Davis to landscapes by New Hampshire Living Treasure award winner John Hatch and abstract compositions by contemporary painter and sculptor Varujan Boghosian.
You can book the library's pass by going to our website.

We have many art books that include the work of artists who are in the exhibit including, Two worlds of Andrew Wyeth: A Conversation with Andrew Wyeth[759.13 WYE], and The world of Winslow Homer, 1836-1910 [759.13 HOM].

For those interesting in learning more about how to paint using watercolors, we have many books on technique, most of which may be found in 751.422.
