Diana Thompson, Assistant Curator, National Academy Museum, leads a gallery talk on realist painter, Colleen Browning.


Colleen Browning: Urban Dweller, Exotic Traveler

Realist painter Colleen Browning’s work is largely recognized for its command of material and media and for her unwavering devotion to depicting the human condition. Colleen Browning: Urban Dweller, Exotic Traveler highlights Browning’s provocative sense of design, underlying abstract compositional structure, bold application of texture and pattern, and personal and dramatic renderings of light and atmosphere. Featuring twenty works, the exhibition uncovers Browning’s subject matter: New York City and sites in the developing world where Browning visited and worked, including Grenada, South America, and North Africa.
