American Art and Internationalism in the Gilded Age
Join us for the first program in our new "In Conversation" series, a live online conversation about the importance of international travel and exchange to American art in the Gilded Age. Nicole Williams, honorary guest scholar and postdoctoral teaching fellow (2019–2020) in the Department of Art History and Archaeology in Arts & Sciences, will be joined by Angela Miller, professor in the Department of Art History & Archaeology, for this discussion on American art of the late nineteenth century and how its modern, multicultural spirit also announced the country’s emerging status as a global power. The conversation will be moderated by Meredith Malone, associate curator at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum.

Williams is the curator of the Museum’s upcoming online Teaching Gallery exhibition "Global Vistas: American Art and Internationalism in the Gilded Age," which further explores this theme through a selection of paintings, prints, photographs, and decorative arts that reflect how Americans increasingly defined their nation by looking to the foreign landscapes and cultures of Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Caribbean basin. The artworks discussed are from the collection of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum and other holdings at Washington University in St. Louis, including the Russell Sturgis Photograph Collection in University Archives, and Special Collections in Washington University Libraries.
