In the 19th century, European and North American traveler artists illustrated narratives of their explorations, and in this talk we look closely at travels in Latin America. Katherine Manthorne, Ph.D, professor at CUNY Graduate Center and a specialist in landscape art, will discuss Frederic Church and her book, Traveler Artists: Landscapes of Latin America from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. Illustrated lecture followed by Q&A and an abridged tour of the exhibition OVERLOOK. Refreshments will be served.

This presentation is held in conjunction with the exhibition OVERLOOK: Teresita Fernández Confronts Frederic Church at Olana, a collaboration between The Olana Partnership and the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. In it, artist Teresita Fernández examines Frederic Church and his contemporaries’ response to the cultures and landscapes they experienced during their 19th century Latin American travels. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore Fernández’s perspective and respond to her provocative installation in Olana’s Sharp Family Gallery.
