Join us for an exclusive, members online event as Karl Kusserow, the John Wilmerding Curator of American Art, discusses Robert Weir's painting The Greenwich Boat Club. The 1832 cholera outbreak in New York might appear to have little in common with The Greenwich Boat Club, Robert Weir’s carefree painting of bourgeois sociability, yet it resulted from that deadly event, when residents fled the city in an effort to escape contagion. The painting depicts one such expedition, while revealing how environmental conditions can affect art’s appearance and meaning.
