The Fall 2021 Howard E. Wooden Lecture, sponsored by Friends of the Wichita Art Museum, explores this fascinating and cosmopolitan chapter in American art. In Whistler to Cassatt: The Making of an Exhibition, Dr. Timothy Standring will give the WAM audience a behind-the-scenes look at his groundbreaking exhibition on American painters in France. The exhibition, opening at the Denver Art Museum on November 14, features WAM’s own Mary Cassatt masterpiece, Mother and Child.
Dr. Timothy Standring is Curator Emeritus of the Denver Art Museum. Since joining DAM in 1989, Dr. Standring has aimed to make art and art history accessible to a broader public. He has curated more than 18 exhibitions, including the blockbusters Becoming Van Gogh, Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker, and Degas: A Passion for Perfection. His exhibition Whistler to Cassatt: American Painters in France opens in Denver before traveling to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
