This library talk is a chance for practitioners of the art of oil painting in the 21st century to look back and, nearly 100 years after him, reassess Charles W. Hawthorne’s (1872-1930) contributions to our field of art. Hawthorne was a member of the Salmagundi Club, joining in 1899.
About the Speaker
“The purpose of my artwork is to engage, learn and fulfill the inner drive to uncover answers about the mysteries of human form. I aspire to venerate the human figure through an imaginative manner of drawing and painting, seeking to understand how the beauty of its majestic framework may communicate an unreachable, intrinsic, intangible presence.”
