Name: The Art of Romaine Brooks
Date: September 8, 2018 - December 9, 2018
Event Description:
This exhibition The Art of Romaine Brooks, on loan from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, brings together 18 paintings and 32 drawings by the American expatriate artist Romaine Brooks (1874-1970), a number of which have not been seen for decades. An extraordinarily independent woman, Brooks crafted an androgynous appearance and a unique artistic voice that challenged conventions of how women should look and behave; her rebellious ideas extend to many of the portraits she painted in the 1920s and underline the alluring modernity of her best-known works.
