"Artful Stories: Paintings from Historic New England" is an online exhibition that reflects what it is about New England – its architecture, landscapes, towns, and people – that imbues the region with a unique sense of place. The paintings date from the 1730s to today and are arranged by theme. "Land & Sea," in the first gallery, highlights the region’s geography. "At Home in New England," in the second gallery, considers where and how people have lived here. "New England’s People," in the third gallery, introduces an array of intriguing men and women. "The Wide World," in the fourth gallery, demonstrates the ways New Englanders have experienced places and cultures elsewhere. Curated by Peter Trippi, editor-in-chief of Fine Art Connoisseur, and Nancy Carlisle, senior curator of collections at Historic New England.
This online exhibition also includes historical photographs, additional content provided by the curators, and a chance to see some video of conservation work. This online preview is a complement to "Artful Stories: Paintings from Historic New England", that opens in the exhibition galleries at the Eustis Estate in Milton, Massachusetts, this fall.
