In Conversation: “Maine Pictorialism”

In Conversation: “Maine Pictorialism”

Moderated Panel Discussion with Diana Greenwold, Libby Bischof, and Susan Danly

The PMA is proud to offer a special discussion with Diana Greenwold, Libby Bischof, and Susan Danly in conjunction with the exhibition Clarence H. White and His World: The Art and Craft of Photography, 1895–1925.

Join these three local experts as they explore the Maine connections of self-taught photographer Clarence H. White and his important role in the popularity of Pictorialist photography in the early 20th century. At a time when the medium of photography was still relatively young, the work of Clarence H. White bridges the world of photography as a scientific tool and the world of photography as an art. This discussion examines Maine’s role in Pictorialist photography, with a special focus on White’s school in Seguinland and his close relationships with fellow artists who summered in Maine, such as F. Holland Day and Gaston Lachaise.
