Noontime Talk: Saying Prayers by Horace Pippin

Noontime Talk: Saying Prayers by Horace Pippin

End your week with art! Each Friday at noon, join a curator, educator, scholar, or artist in the galleries.

 

This week, join Phillippa Pitts, Associate Educator for Gallery Learning, for a talk on  Saying Prayers by Horace Pippin.

Self-taught artist Horace Pippin (1888-1946) lost the use of his right arm while serving in the African American regiment known as the "Harlem Hellfighters" during World War I. Yet he persisted in creating energetic depictions of his life in Pennsylvania and New York as well as of historical and religious subjects. Join us as we take a close look at his semi-autobiographical, intimate painting depicting domestic life, Saying Prayers.
