The panel talk at Woodstock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM) will include presentations and discussions by exhibition curator, Valerie Ann Leeds, and catalogue essayists Tom Wolf and Daniel Belasco, curator at The Dorsky Museum.
Called “America’s greatest living painter” by Esquire magazine in 1936, Eugene Speicher (1883-1962) was one of the foremost realists of his generation. He was closely associated with George Bellows, Robert Henri, Leon Kroll, and Rockwell Kent. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue, which explore this important American artist who was also a preeminent figure in the noted Woodstock Art Colony, seek to reevaluate Speicher’s place in the canon of early twentieth-century American art.
