Man with the Pitchfork: Iconic 20th Century
American Paintings
Stella Grace Lyons Tuesday 10 March 2020

The first half of the 20th Century was a golden age for figurative painters in North America.  Many of the most reproduced images from American Art History were created during this time - Grant Wood’s “American Gothic”,  Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World” as well as paintings by Norman Rockwell, Edward Hopper and the Ashcan School of painting.  This lecture will explore the most iconic images to come out of America, all of which are firmly etched in the public consciousness.
