Artful Stories: Paintings from Historic New England
Friday, May 21, 4:00 – 5:15 p.m. ET
For the first time in its 111-year history, Historic New England has gathered 45 of its most intriguing paintings for an exhibition that is now on view at Eustis Estate (Milton, Massachusetts) through Autumn 2021. "Artful Stories: Paintings from Historic New England" offers a rare opportunity to experience these artworks in museum-style galleries quite unlike their customary contexts at the organization’s 37 historic properties and collections storage facility. Together the paintings reflect significant, sometimes surprising, aspects of the region’s intellectual and cultural life over three centuries. Co-curators Nancy Carlisle (Senior Curator of Collections, Historic New England) and Peter Trippi (Editor-in-Chief, "Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine") developed "Artful Stories" over more than three years and will share some of the discoveries they made while exploring and researching its contents.
