Lecture: The Study of Night in Art & Space
Around 1900, Frederic Remington began a series of paintings focusing on the subject of night scenes. Remington’s nocturnes are among the favorites of visitors to the Sid Richardson Museum today, which has five Remington night paintings in our collection. Join us for a paired lecture program as TCU art history professor Dr. Mark Thistlethwaite situates Remington’s nocturnes within the practice of late 19th century American art. Dr. Doug Ingram, senior instructor from TCU Department of Physics & Astronomy, will follow with an examination of the study, views, and beliefs of the night sky at the turn of the century.
