DIGGING IN: ALSON SKINNER CLARK AND JONAS LIE’S PANAMA CANAL PAINTINGS
Speaker: Dr. Jonathan Stuhlman
Curator of American Art, Mint Museum

In 1913 both Alson Skinner Clark and Jonas Lie created a dynamic series of paintings after visiting the Panama Canal During the final phases of its construction. Prior to their trips south, each had achieved a respectable reputation in the American art world and seemd poised to make the leap to the next level of his career. Each felt that their Panama Canal series had the potential to propel them to the forefront of the American art world. This talk will examine how both artists came to paint the Canal, the reception that their paintings of it’s construction received, and the way these paintings impacted their careers after the Canal opened.
