Author event: DeLue at the University of Chicago
On May 11 at 4:30 p.m., Rachel DeLue, author of George Inness and the Science of Landscape will lecture at the University of Chicago’s Cochrane-Woods Art Center (5540 S. Greenwood Avenue). Her lecture is titled "Diagnosing Pictures: The Science of Looking in America circa 1900." The event is free and open to the public.
George Inness (1825-94), long considered one of America’s greatest landscape painters, has yet to receive his full due from scholars and critics. Rachael Ziady DeLue’s George Inness and the Science of Landscape—the first in-depth examination of Inness’s career to appear in several decades—demonstrates how the artistic, spiritual, and scientific aspects of Inness’s art found expression in his masterful landscapes.
