Barbara Swan: Reflected Self
November 17, 2013 - February 23, 2014
Barbara Swan’s work is mirror of the time in which she worked. This exhibition of paintings and drawings explores the evolution of Swan’s work, touching on themes that defined her as an artist—devotion to family and career, the influence of the Boston arts community at home and abroad, and her often humorous commentary on gender and the role of women in art history. Swan’s style and methodology evolved over the course of her career, but her attentiveness to draftsmanship and her search for an artistic identity are a constant and expressive presence in her work.
