Exploring the Portrait as Art
Bennington Museum’s major exhibition of 2014, Alice Neel/Erastus Salisbury Field: Painting the People, features the work of two acknowledged masters of the portrait as art, separated by 100 years. The work of 19th-century itinerant painter Erastus Salisbury Field and 20th-century master Alice Neel have a remarkable resonance with one another. The exhibit is on view from July 5 through November 2. Bennington Museum is located at 75 Main Street, Bennington, Vt. Visit benningtonmuseum.org or call 802-447-1571 for more information.
