at home: Digital Docents | Bridget Riley

The museum’s docents discuss the special exhibition Bridget Riley: Perceptual Abstraction. This exhibition is the largest survey in the United States in over twenty years of the British abstract artist Bridget Riley. For seven decades Riley has explored line, form, shape, pattern, and color to create dynamic works of art that pulse, shift, and glow with energy and movement. Our docents will discuss the exhibition, Riley’s history, and her influences over this impressive career.

Art in Context | Joshua Reynolds's portrait of Charles Stanhope and Marcus Richard Fitzroy Thomas

Victoria Hepburn discusses the recent identification of Marcus Richard Fitzroy Thomas as the previously unnamed boy in Reynolds’s portrait of Charles Stanhope, third Earl of Harrington. The Yale Center for British Art’s retitling of the painting marks the first time in its 240-year exhibition history that both sitters are named. This talk outlines current research into the life of Marcus Richard Fitzroy Thomas and explores how this new knowledge may bear upon an interpretation of the work.

William Hogarth's Topographies: A Series of Conversations

Topography is central to William Hogarth’s canonical progress series, in which London settings play a decisive narrative role. Lesser-known works by the artist, however, also engage with topographical representation. Pierre Von-Ow’s online exhibition “William Hogarth’s Topographies” considers the artist’s illustrations of national and colonized geographies beyond the metropole. Among international topographical views are Hogarth’s illustrations of Sápmi in the Scandinavian north, referred to at the time as “Lapland.”
