JOHN LESLIE BRECK CURATOR-LED TOUR
December 15, 2021 | 2:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
As part of the Mint’s Free Wednesday Evenings, Jonathan Stuhlman, PhD, senior curator of American art at The Mint Museum, leads tours of the museum’s current running exhibit, John Leslie Breck: American Impressionist. Born at sea off Hong Kong’s coast in 1860, the son of a naval officer, Breck studied in Munich and Paris, then traveled to Giverny, France where he befriended impressionist master Claude Monet. Learning and adopting the style and techniques of his new friend, Breck introduced impressionism to the U.S. with a show in Boston in 1890.
