Introducing art historian, John Francis, our new guest editor with his Weekly Culture Picks.
"Since last March, art galleries, museums, universities and cultural institutions around the world have increased their online presence. This means a vast array of exciting opportunities to view and discuss art has become available.
Let’s start with our neighbours across the pond in New York: Whitney Museum of American Art
Their current exhibition is well worth a look:
Free webinars about the exhibition
Exhibition-supporting short essays make the topic very accessible.
The Whitney, amazingly, has 3,000+ works by the great American realist Edward Hopper. The short video 'A walking tour of Edward Hopper’s New York' has a fascinating focus on his iconic ‘Nighthawk’ artwork. Browse this huge catalogue to discover compositional sketches, working drawings and studies giving us a unique insight into his creative process."
